And MOAR NEWS!
Today is Steles of the Sky's birthday, and I'm so excited I may be having heart flutters over here. There's something about the long setup on a series, and the eventual payoff, that... okay, so when I used to run tabletop RPGs a lot more than I have time for now, there was this moment when my players always knew they'd stumbled on The Awful Troof--cracked the campaign wide open, basically, and found the central mystery and aw-hell moment.
Because I would start grinning this particular delighted maniacal grin.
The great joy for me as a storyteller is the moment when the person I'm telling the story to figures out what's up. And I have been just dying to tell everybody the rest of this story for years now.
So you can imagine how excited I currently am.
In celebration of the day, there's GUEST POSTS!
Here's a post at SF Signal on writing special-needs characters in SFF.
Here's a post at the Locus blog regarding noveling as an argument with one's self.
And here's my Big Idea post at the Whatever, where my second Item of News for the week is revealed.
News! Awesome news!
