Fellow author and Unburied Treasures author Nyki Blatchley was kind enough to interview me over at his blog
Today I’m interviewed by the delightful Lydia Kurnia over at her blog: Introducing Barbara A. Barnett…
The writing has been slow-going these last couple weeks, but there have at least been writing-related shiny things that I finally have time to post about:
* Shiny thing #2: I’m super late mentioning it, but a few weeks ago I got to babble over on my awesome Odyssey classmate Rebecca Roland’s blog as part of her Thumbnail Thursday series.
* And last but certainly not least, shiny thing #3: I’m quite pleased to say that I recently received an acceptance from Daily Science Fiction for my story “Memories of Mirrored Worlds,” to which I owe thanks to Jaime Lee Moyer’s orphaned first sentence contest for the inspiration.
Today I get to play over at Anaea Lay’s blog as part of her Lies for Fun and Profit series. I sewed my interview answers into the flesh of a Starbucks barista who gave me incorrect change, then shipped the still-screaming barista to Anaea via stork. True story.
2) I’ve spent far too much of today transfixed by the internet train wreck that is Weird Tales and their now-revoked intent to publish the first chapter of the “thoroughly non-racist book” Saving the Pearls. If you somehow missed the WTFery, you can find a summary and related links here.
5) After getting back from vacation a couple weeks ago, I was determined to get lots of writing accomplished before before the fall semester craziness begins. Sadly, I have been failing miserably at that. I’ll have a brief burst of productivity only to then turn into a total slug. Today, I was particularly slug-like. My brain, being the uncooperative evil thing that it is, seems amused by the irony that, after hosting a discussion night at TNEO called “Buffy the Rejection Slayer: Defeating Doubt, Procrastination & Other Writerly Demons,” I am now totally getting my ass handed to me by those very demons. I think it’s time to get out the stake.
