Very Brief, Very Long

At Fourteen Weeks Roary Is Getting Very Long

I wrote about forty pages between Monday and Friday of last week, then took the weekend off to organize my thoughts while I let my aching fingers rest.  Now I’m eager to write the concluding parts of the rough, rough draft of the yet untitled fourth book in the Star Kingdom series that I’m currently writing with David Weber.

If you’re feeling like a longer visit with me, I suggest you look at the interview that’s just been published on the Krypton Radio site.  Ivan Majstorovic’s questions were quite interesting, and far from formulaic.  In the course of our rambling discussion, we touched on a wide variety of topics, including getting kids to read, literary versus popular fiction, collaboration, and a bit about my time with Roger Zelazny.

So, enjoy.  Now, I’m off to the planet Sphinx.

    That was fun. And, somehow, I feel I’ve learned more about the real Jane from it than from the last 5, or whatever it’s been, years hanging about here. The expression seemed very spontaneous; you let things hang out.

      I always invite people to ask questions, but people rarely do. Ivan did his research and I thought asked good questions. And the me here is really me. I love animals, plants, books, writing, Jim. These are the daily pushpins of my life.

        I’ve never doubted that you were really here. But, you are a writer, and a good one, so you write the Wanderings. And you write them well, you don’t just bang them out and put them up. Sometimes that makes a difference, although I’d be hard-pressed to explain it.

        I think it’s called narrative voice.

    Very enjoyable read. The vertical writing through me off at first, but was a joy to pick out the words and the understanding. I’m glad I saw the artwork from some of your first FireKeeper books; they are very good.

    Keeping animals in your life is important. I see the pictures you have of your new “pets” and how they are developing reminds me of how kids develop. A little bit at a time. Kittens are so much fun but cats develop interesting personalities. Enjoy!

      I shall let Ivan know the formatting error is still there…

      Yes! This FF post will have elderly Kwahe’e featured. He’s just as much fun, but in a different way.
