I'll be pitching to a rep from the Nelson Literary Agency this weekend.  Yay!

A bit more than halfway through the 2nd book, The Bloody Empress.  Enjoying it immensely.  I limited my previous sci fi presentation at the NWW to elements of sci fi like time travel mechanics.  The new presentation this week will involve creating timelines and maps.  A person from the World Herald might be there too reporting on the NWW over the next few weeks.  I'm now reading the "Game" novels, just finished the "Of Thrones" variety, about to begin the "Hunger" flavor now.  And of course I'll continue to write of Corsis's Game in mine.  Carry on, I say.  Carry on.

I'll be leading a discussion in the Nebraska Writers Workshop on Speculative Fiction world building in a few weeks.  Maps and timelines shall be made.  I anticipate there to be a great fluidity in the creation.  Made by committee yes, but still a fun exercise in revealing a hidden world that our world has yet to see.  Either way, I'm sure I'll get marker ink on my fingers from the dry erase board.

I'm in the midst of re-writing a scene depicting a horrific chasm in the ground filled with grey, undulating cavities and filled with what will end up being either monstrous worm things, monstrous spider things, or a whole mess of monstrous bugs of all varieties.  In fact, having just written that sentence, it's gotta be the latter.  If you're creating anything, don't be afraid to go with the icky things if the content demands it.  The line between truth and gratuity is fine indeed, but one that storytellers must tread.  Well, at least this storyteller must tread it.

Johnny wrote something naughty.  The rage swells anew.  Why won't pancakes fly?
