Shared Worlds

I did a cool thing with some other authors. You should go look at it.

That is all,

      Brevity is the soul of wit. Ayup.

      Well, you know, many an English teacher always told me to keep it short and concise…

        My last English teacher told me “You will use more than 1000 words in your final exam or else”. Half-jokingly. I think I used about 950 or so and still got 14/15. :)

      It’s the KISS-rule: keep it short and simple. No innuendo and stuff…

      P.S. Just finished part 1 of “Targa mehe hirm” (Estonian version of The Wise Man Fear, published around a week ago) and I’m heartbroken to wait for the second part. But it was still a nice birthday present.:-)

    Is this something you did last year or something you will do this summer (2012)? If this summer, will you be doing any signings in the area?

      I don’t think he’s going to the actual camp (although I can let him speak for himself). Did you find his animal on the virtual poster, though?

    Heh. Just like Hemingways six word story (“Baby shoes for sale. Never worn.”). He allegedely considered it one of his best.

    For some reason I kind of expected your text to be about either the violent rowdy duck or the duck in the fluffy cloud.

    When I saw the little vomitting creature I immediately knew he was yours. Way to set the bar Mr. Rothfuss. Seeing your hyperemetic critter made my morning.

    Gaiman’s monster actually made me get up and turn the lights on.

    I like a lot the colorful and alegoric drawings. About the texts, I have always liked the surreal description of nonexistent (?) creatures. Anyway, I had never heard about a writter camp before, it sounds really cool… In my country there aren’t things like that (that sounds so exceedingly unhappy ).
    It would be great to have a t-shirt of this disturbing beings

    Awesome!
    And i particularly love this:
    “symptom of syphilitic insanity”
    Too funny … thank you again for great stuff!

    PS Gaimans was great too … i turned around.

    Oh please come to Spartanburg, SC for two weeks – I would take you out to dinner every single day you were here…Or come for a day!!!

    LOL, I’ll bet that was ridiculous fun. I once wrote a poem about my sweater being dirty and won a poetry contest with it. People were pissed when they found out it was about my sweaters feelings….for some reason this poster just reminded me of that….now sure why. hmm.

    Anyway, is that thing throwing up or drinking up? I couldnt tell. *lifts one eyebrow*

    • Posted February 15, 2012 at 10:53 PM | Permalink

      You might need to read the description more closely…

        Oh sheesh…

        /Fail.

        Thats a lot of freakin’ barf man. But at least its pink…thats sort of awesome.

        I’m going to pretend it glows in the dark…since that just makes me happy.

    You have nice Bloobs.

    Posted February 15, 2012 at 6:39 PM | Permalink

    Cool. However, there is a bug in the description of the bloob. See if you can find it, it’s in the snippet below

    These circumstances might account for of Throppe’s more outlandish claims. Specifically, that the Bloob’s diet consists primarily of granola, that it is prone to fits of depression, and that it is greatly cheered by gifts of gin, raisins, and box tops.

    Spoiler Warning

    In the first sentence, the sequence of words “for of” does not fit with the rest of the words, either take away the “of”, or add “some” in between.

    PS: Pat, keep up the good work.

    • Posted February 17, 2012 at 12:29 AM | Permalink

      Can I whack this guy on the head?

      I don’t think there is anything wrong with the sentence and further it is rude to correct a professional about their work.
      Do you tell your cook… “Erm, Mister I think you haven’t followed the recipe correctly!”… You will probably end up with spit in your food.

        There is something wrong with the sentence, but it´s a simple typo. A missing word. Who cares? And pointing it out with words like “see if you can find it below” is pretty damn condescending. So yeah, I´d partake in that whacking activity.

        If my cook was about to put chili powder in instead of paprika on top of my deviled eggs – HELL yes I would correct them.

    Cool art! Loved your old post about what you do during revision rounds. How many beta readers do you use?

    Totally off-topic: do you think kindle editions of books have more typos than printed? I noticed typos in a lot of my kindle books, yours included. are you aware of these (WMF) or do you want your readers (me) to point them out?

    Bloobs are real. Stop talking about them like they’re not.

    Your creation was cool, and the story gave me a little smile when I remembered the time I got drunk on vodka+strawberry juice and my vomit was pink. really weird.

    But Neil Gaiman monster sent shivers down my spine, and I needed to control myself not to look back.

    Gaiman’s Shadder is brilliant and creepily evocative, yeah, but nothing to fear. The day of that last knife is not this day; I am not ready to be eaten, and so it will not eat me.

    Hmm. I want to hear about more of Throppe’s explorations, and the various creatures discovered.

    Any idea who did the artwork? It looks like something by Jake Rueth.

    I don’t know how I did it, but after hovering over lots of the pop-up sections (sometimes twice and even three times), I got to yours. And I just knew. I don’t know how I knew, but I knew.

    I have no idea what that says about me… or you… but I giggled. :D

    Bloobs. Yes.
