Interview – Illusion TV

Bravo on yesterday’s SAT questions. While I enjoyed them all, I actually laughed at “Kvothe is to Harry Potter as pudding is to cats.” That was probably my favorite, though I did enjoy the buffy the vampire slayer one as well.

I had a longer post planned for today, but it’s delayed due to a digital camera spasm of a mysterious sort. Hopefully it’ll be sorted out by tomorrow…

For now, if you’re bored, you can go enjoy the most recent interview HERE.

Later,

Fried Rice and a new Interview….

So the other day I order some Chinese food, because having someone bring food directly to your house and eating it in your jammies is perhaps the most decadent pleasure that exists.

I ordered some food for my girlfriend as well. This is partly because I’m sensitive and thoughtful and awesome. But, truthfully, it’s also because if I didn’t, she would just eat half of mine and then I’d be sad and hungry.

Just as the food arrived, my girlfriend called me and told me she’d be late getting home from work. I tell her that I’ll wait dinner for her, again because of the awesome, and resist the urge to open the bag to get at the egg rolls. Instead I set the paper bag on my bed and cover it up with a blanket to keep it warm until she gets home.

Eventually she does, and we eat it, and it’s lovely.

But that’s not the end of the story. The end of the story is that now my blankets smell like chicken fried rice. You’d think this would be a bad thing, but not so much. Truth is, it’s kinda nice, actually.

Ah yes. There you go. Another little peek into my life.

Why am I writing about this? Hell, I don’t know. Why do I write anything? I suppose because it amuses me, and because I hope it might amuse you too.

If you’re looking for more odd ramblings of mine, you can find them in the newest interview I’ve done over HERE at the Book Swede.

We talk, among other things, about monkeys.

Later all,

An interview with Adventures Underground.

If you thought I’d managed to talk myself out in the Question and Answer interview format, you were sadly mistaken.

Proof of this is evident in a new interview over at ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND.

I’m almost always surprised when I go back and read these interviews. You see, I’ve got a weird memory. I forget things really easily. Sometimes my friends tell stories about me, things that I don’t remember doing. Or they repeat jokes back to me that I don’t remember telling in the first place. Sometimes when I’m revising my own books, I stumble onto scenes I don’t remember writing. In fact, I just found one of those where Elodin takes Kvothe to a brothel as part of instruction into the subtle and volatile art of naming. Funny stuff.

My point is, after I do one of these interviews, I usually forget what I’ve said. So when the Q & A goes live and the person hosting it sends me a link, I get to read them over and experience them with fresh eyes. Sometimes I agree with what I’ve said. Most of the time, actually. Sometimes I disagree, or find myself wishing I’d phrased things a little more clearly.

Sometimes I find myself thinking things like, “Wow, that’s exactly what I think!”Then I feel dumb because, well, of course it’s what I think. Or at least, it’s what I thought back when I wrote it a week or two ago. My opinions are fluid and frangible. Does this mean I occasionally contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself.

I think this is healthy. Or at least it makes me happy, which means it’s healthy for me. I’ve always felt that I’ve had the right to disagree with anyone about anything. How horrible then would it be if I didn’t feel free to disagree with myself?

Enough rambling. You can go CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW if you’re curious.

They also have a few signed copies of my book there, if you’re into that sort of thing.

An Interview at Bookloons.

I actually did this Q & A more than a month ago. Then I forgot to make any mention of it on the page. Because I’m a spaz.

So it’s probably new to most everyone here. If you’re interested, you can GO CHECK IT OUT.

Later,

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….
