The past two days have been a fabulous whirlwind of writing for me. My new Forces of Geek column is up, although sadly it is rather truncated. There’s a lot more I want to say about Lev Grossman’s WSJ piece. Not strictly in terms of the piece itself, but what it represents as a part of the social life of science fiction. I really wanted to talk about Grossman’s conception of readers and delve a bit more into the middle ground he proposes. I might do some of that here, but rather than get too caught up in that right now, I have been doing some other writing.
Jay Lake put a flash-fiction challenge up on his blog, and I just finished writing that. I will post that separately so that I can put the link in his comments section. I made use of as many details from the scene as possible. Hopefully, it works for other readers. . . .
Working on the short story right now. The family has gone on an outing so the house is all mine, which means I need to write! So, back to it.
