Writer Fiddly Bits

Good morning for writer fiddly bits.

Sent off questions for two interviews. For the first interview, I’m starting my series of writer’s drafting processes. I see a lot of interviews that capture first sales, but not as many interviews that look as much at drafting and other milestones in writer’s lives, and now I’m curious about that. Caroline Stevermer has graciously agreed to be my first interview with this, so stay tuned for her answers. She was kind enough to give Writer Tamago a great interview about themes in College of Magics. I expect this interview to be wonderful as well.

The other interview is one of the missing two Viable Paradise interviews. I heard from Drew Morby! So, I’ve sent Drew off a list of questions, and I await his answers. It’s a bit like collecting a rare comic….

Leah, I’m still happy to interview you. Have I sent you questions?


Also spent this morning thinking a little bit about the shape a novel support group is going to take. I have a couple of writer friends who are working pretty much only on novels and like me, are trying to go the traditional publishing/agent route. What does this mean? Lots of work with little immediate gratification. So, time for support. As I said in an email to them, it’s either that or drinking!

Well, I gotta go to bookstore two, where I’m going to finish reading some stories for the Dallas workshop. There are plenty to be had, so I doubt I’ll finish today. Friday’s my next writing session. I’ll get back to Abigail Rath on that day.
