Movable feasting. Yah, I'm rippin' from Ernest, but there it is. I had thought to pose a different discussion question when this idear came to mind. First, though, a teensy bit of background. Air by Geoff Ryman. Have you read it yet? If so, why not? I've pushed this book on a different Oort thread SPLINK before, but I feel compelled to push it some more. Why? Because I've never read an sf book that made me want to weep for joy at the end. It's so got-dam human as well, that I can't get over how it's not getting more press than it deserves. I like it so much, in fact, that I'm willing to mail my copy to you, pay for the postage and all, so that you can read it.
So, right now what is everybody reading?
I'm purling through Gravity's Rainbow at the moment, and probably will be for a long time.
Alrighty, what's yer favorite writing pitfall?
Mine is the 'anti-cliché cliché'. These are the clichés that result from actively trying not to be cliché in the first place.
I'm going to start this by suggesting that every Wednesday someone(s) come up with a different topic of discussion that relates to OpenLit/Social Publishing/Writing and so on. Why the deadline? Besides the reference to Lenny Zero's developing story, it would appear that published authors tend to work under deadlines, whether enforced by a publisher or by their own selves.
