Yet Another Interview….

If you’re into this sort of thing, it’s over here.

This interview was a little more casual, and smart-assery was encouraged. So while I always enjoy the opportunity to talk about books and writing, I enjoyed this interview in a different way. Not only was it more relaxed, but I got to be snarky.

Plus I was allowed to cuss a little and I made fun of the interviewer for being long-winded. Which is pretty funny if you think about it….

    Yes Pat, teasing the interviewer for being long winded is kinda funny, what with your penchant for two part interviews. I enjoyed this one, I really like your talk of world building. I want to know how they feed the dragons too. I’m eagerly awaiting part two.

    Good stuff, Pat!I admire how every interview I read with you takes on its own life and never do I feel like I’m reading the same interview over and over again.~Aidan< HREF="" REL="nofollow">A Dribble of Ink<>

    Playing Choda Boy can be quite an illuminating experience, I must say ;) Yeah, I was going to comment about that in private, Pat, but since others are bringing it up…pot and kettle? :PSeriously though, it was a blast doing this and I’m glad to see others are enjoying it. I agree with Aidan, as each of your interviews do take a life of their own, which was a major relief, as I’d rather have the Sassy Pat than the overly Humble Pat this time. Even if I used too many commas :(Josie, Part II will be up in a couple of hours. I have to head out to do some errands and then I’ll get to work on editing in all the HTML that’s needed. I think y’all will enjoy that one better – and you can see Pat squirming to think of a good answer to one particular question *mwhahahaha*

    Two parts to every interview. Trilogy of books, a year between each. Nothing is whole anymore.

    I just got done catching up on your blog. I have to admit, it’s pretty exciting to read about an author with his first book published. Looking forward to reading more of your blog and your books in the future.

    Hahaha! I love it, you give the best interviews ever. I just read the second part and I must say the monkey orgy sounds interesting.Thanks very much for signing and personalizing my book recently. It really meant a lot to me because I love your work; I mention your book all the time.

    Just finished reading the 2nd half of this interview and I have a couple comments.First, your response to the Monkey question was great. You are definitely someone I could pound down a Guinness with.Secondly, I have to point out that when you say, “putting a monkey in pants isn’t really cool” you are mistaken. Monkeys love wearing pants and in fact, openly mock the other animals over their ability to drop trou at a moment’s notice. This is known.

    I swear, you are one of the funniest people I know. You seem like you could come in and hold an ‘intellegent’ conversation with me, my friends, and various pet monkeys without being awkward or out of place at all.I also looked up those authors in my local library, and guess what?They wren’t there! I’m seriously considering a complaint ;)The world comments in these past two interviews really make a lot of sense to me, if I have any time this summer, I’ll have to get started.Hope I kept the commas down to a minimum :P

    I like the way you deal with “fear of contamination” among authors. Great metaphor to refer to chefs not eating when they are creating a new cuisine. I get very paranoid/worried about this stuff when I am writing. You can imagine my pain in readnig The Name of the Wind as my main character is a bard and has been for a long, long time. I will have to learn to deal with it and “un-contaminate” as best I can if I find myself creating little Sherlock Holmes’.Damn, a chef does not stop eating when he is creating a new cuisine. Brilliant.

    Great interview! My favorite part was “I’m a narratavore. If I don’t get stories into me, I start to starve.” I’ve never heard it described quite like that, even though many of us share in the symptoms.It was interesting what you said about Denna – she is indeed complex, and I haven’t quite made up my mind about her yet. There are some aspects about her that resonate very much, others that are less likeable – I suppose just like with any person. I’m going to stay on the fence for now.

    Hey Pat, the link to your blog doesn’t work on the front page, right above your photo. What’s up with that?

    Narratavore. Great word. For some reason, a Latin species classification thing popped up in my mind, you know, like ‘narratavorus literari’ or something.I saw a DVD of “The Last Unicorn” in the book store today and thought of you and Josie.Nice sparring in the interview. Those were some mind-boggling questions to read! Glad I didn’t have to respond to them.Best,Wendy
