I had a very nice birthday. I don't recommend eating birthday cake for seventy though.
The wonderful Becky has published an interview with me. For any of you who might be interested, here's the link:
The poll on whether I should post the possible third book outline ended last night with the majority voting that I should. I'm going to keep it on the blog for a week, and then delete it.
The rules are simple. Don't post comments about the outline. Don't e-mail me your thoughts or comments. I doubt any of you will be inclined to blog about it, but just in case, I'd appreciate it if you didn't (Google tells me everything). It's not that I don't value your opinion. It's that I value it too highly.
There are a couple of references in the outline to characters from Life As We Knew It and the dead and the gone. If you think of such things as spoilers, don't read the outline.
I'm posting the outline because a lot of you helped me when I was working through the plot, and I thought you might be interested to see how I incorporated your ideas. Keep in mind, the outline is an organic part of the writing process for me. I changed things in it as recently as last night. If P3B ever gets published, there will be many things that aren't in the outline and a few things that are completely different from it.
Posting the outline will make it easier for me if I blog about writing the book, since I'll assume you'll understand the references to characters and story.
And speaking of writing the book, once I get these blogs posted, that's exactly what I'll be doing. Wish me luck!
