Not on hiatus

02 Jan

I’m not. I’m really not. It’s just busy, I’m writing, and I think that I’m still more sick than I originally believed. Getting going is really rough. I’m gently worried this is more than a cold.


Here is another Neil Gaiman piece, talking about writing. And it’s not hiatus filler. It’s just because, as we’ve seen before, it can be nice and heartening to see real authors talk about this sort of stuff. Here you go: Neil Gaiman On Writing.

    Speaking of Ether, how apropriate, ’tis MY new novel Ether that will cause many a writer to disembowel themselves on their pens ! You shall all read it and wail to your bedroom walls your inadequacy and utter lack of talent. You shall throw your computers onto the heaps of garbage in your local land fills, tear your papers into kitty litter filler, and . . . and . . . Bwhahahahah!! *cough*

    What? Low blood sugar, you say? Well, now that you ask, I could use a cookie.

    That’s because you haven’t read anything of The Neon God which will be the epitome of the entire science fiction field and shall leave writers everywhere ashamed of their own paltry offerings on the altar of great literature, and lo! shall Mssrs. Heinlein & Asimov turn over in their graves knowing that they have been usurped!

    My blood sugar’s fine, but I’d quite like a cookie. 😀

    LOL! My two favorite manical nuts.

    I think you sound quite like Mr. Gaiman did in that article when you start in on the things writerly.

    It’s quite cute.

    I guess there are worse people to sound like. I could sound like a generic AOL’er (is that even a relevant joke anymore? ARE there any AOL’rs? Does anyone even USE AOL? Is AOL just a pile of disks in cheap cardboard wrappers with “FREE VERSION EIGHT!” on them which are going to wind up in a museum soon?)

    Unfortunately, Mr. Gaiman still has better hair than I do, and I haven’t forgiven him for that.

    I swear to all things good and wonderful that my head is going to explode today. Does that count as a medical reason to leave work? This cannot be healthy.

    And you should not get sicker, Mr. Man. Rather you should get better. Is this why you’re bribing? So that while you’re in the hospital being sick, you’ll still win?

    Seriously, rest as much as your body says to. It knows these things.

    AOL? I’m still using Compuserve!


    Oh, god, I think I pulled something.

    You dialed up your 24k modem and logged onto the “inter Net” and then used the Googlemax to come to this “web sight,” where you will post a comment, and then it’s off to check your Alt.Total.Loser group, and maybe your electronic mailings! This internet is rad! And then we can go watch Voltron!

    Voltron. OK, good, someone read that. 🙂

    Kirstine, cool. That would fit in so well with my collections of Wild, Wild West, Combat!, and Lost in Space.

    Ah, but do you have the Rat Patrol?

    I don’t, but I’ve considered it 😀
