At Long Last, the Magic Spreadsheet!

2013-01-18 :: mightymur@gmail.com (Mur Lafferty)
Length: 3s

I interviewed Tony Pisculli about the "Magic Spreadsheet" the only thing in the entire history of history that has gotten me to write every day since Dec. 3 (nearly 24000 words). I've written on sick days, travel days, residency days, and holidays. It may not work for everyone but it's sure as hell worked for me. So here's a short interview of Tony and I walking and talking about the magic spreadsheet (hence the change in background noise) and here is the LINK to the magic spreadsheet. Add your name at the bottom (and if you feel like it, put ISBW next to your name so I can follow who's tracking) and start tracking! And it goes without saying, but don't mess with anyone else's numbers.

I had a great time at blogworld/BEA last week. New York remains awesome. I also met with my editor and team at Orbit, which was a fantastic experience.

I found out that the audio captured at Balticon for ISBW 252 was lost in a great fire. Or something great. Anyway, it's gone, which leaves the question, do I leave it for the world to remember, or record something and call THAT 252?

I'm catching up on interviews, future weeks will have John Scalzi, Adam Christopher, and more.

Length: 46s

Brought to you by Picking Up the Ghost by Tone Milazzo! Pick up the ebook for only $2.99 until May 8th! This week I run part 1 of the Peter V. Brett interview from World Fantasy Con, and talk about how to handle unrequited love. (In a story, I mean. I can't help you handle it in real life)

  Living in St. Jude, a 110-year-old dying city on the edge of the Mississippi, is tough. But when a letter informs fourteen-year-old Cinque of the passing of the father he never met, he is faced with an incomplete past and an uncertain future. A curse meant for his father condemns Cinque to a slow death even as it opens his eyes to the strange other world around him. With help from the ghost, an enigmatic White Woman, a Loa, and a devious shape-shifter, Cinque gathers the tools to confront the ghost of his dead father. But sometimes too much knowledge can be dangerous - and the people he trusts most are those poised to betray him.

With all of the angst going on with new writers not knowing what to do, you wonder why they don't use the web more often. After I grump for a bit, I talk to Howard Andrew Jones, and then later, off mic, I discover I used my internal mic, not my good mic, so I swear loudly at how bad it sounds.

ISBW #223 - Self pub does not equal total control / John Berlyne Interview

2011-11-11 :: mightymur@gmail.com (Mur Lafferty)
Length: 1s

As some authors dealing with Amazon are finding out, self pubbing your own work doesn't allow you all the control we've been led to believe. In short, READ YOUR TERMS OF SERVICE at Lulu, Amazon, Smashwords, etc. If you don't like the agreement, then don't sign.

I was finally able to pin down the very busy and important agent from the <a href="http://zenoagency.com/">Zeno Agency</a>, John Berlyne, at World Fantasy Con.

ISBW #218 Writing the Other / Lou Anders Interview

2011-09-26 :: mightymur@gmail.com (Mur Lafferty)
Length: 54s

This one was tough to do. I'm pretty closed to as privileged as you can be (I'm a female non-Christian, that's about it), so the chances to offend/get something incredibly wrong are large. But that's the point. People are afraid to write about other races, other genders, other sexual orientations, other ages, other nationalities, because they're afraid to get it wrong, afraid they will offend someone. But it needs to be talked about. It needs to be written about. It makes you a better writer because you work will better reflect the world we live in, and it will make your work available to a wider audience.

And then we talk to Lou Anders from WorldCon, a very tired, loopy, Lou Anders, the Hugo Award Winning editor from Pyr!

Creative types don't think about stuff like investments, insurance, and file backups. That is, until they're 65, sick, with no money in the bank, and their hard drive just crashed. This is stuff you must consider.

Since recording this, I've learned about the Freelancer's Union, and I just became a member. It's rather NYC focused, but there are plenty of benefits for the rest of us too. http://www.freelancersunion.org/
