] Blogs are novelists' notebooks (too)
] Today in Gibson's blog, a rumination on what it feels
] like to be a novelist between novels:
] LIKE A MAGPIE WITHOUT A NEST
] That's how Rudy Rucker, in an email yesterday, described
] how it feels to be a novelist between books. No place to
] take the shiny things we constantly find. He's treating
] his own condition, he said, by writing a horror sorry
] about having belonged to a country club in Lynchburg,
] Virginia, in the early Eighties (man, that *is* scary).
] No place for the magpie mind to take the trinkets and
] bits of tinfoil, currently. If I bring them here, for
] instance, I'm just leaving them on your window-ledge,
] something no magpie would ever be satisfied with doing.
] I've been using this blog to keep track of stuff that
] needs to work its way into my novels for years now.
] Rucker's blog is nothing but notes on his books. Sterling
] says you can extrapolate his next book from this links on
] his blog. I betcha that's true of Warren Ellis, too.
] Blogs are the new novelist's commonplace book. I've been
] saying this for a while, but I thought I might be the
] only one.
