I'm currently wondering about setting up my first friends group.

My current career hiatus is making me think about a lot of things.

As a result, something I'm planning on doing more of over the next few months is working on my short fiction. I want to use a section of this LJ to think about (and share) ideas I'm having, and to noodle through plots and character studies, and to playtest early versions of works. I'll be using it to put together outlines and "high concept" approaches, like the "hello kitty meets Kitsune" vignette I wrote here a while back.

Now, I know some of you won't really be interested in my playing with what Cory Doctorow has called "nerdcore SF", but it's part of my writing I'm now very sure I want to explore further. I've got a couple of universes in my head that are trying to get out, and I'm hoping that using the blog format will help me free up some of the log jams...

So, if you want to see it, sign up here, otherwise I'll assume you don't want to be on the list!

(And those who wanted to read "Tigers", I'll be sending it out tomorrow.)

(Of course, if you're reading this, want to see what I get up to, but don't have an LJ account, I'm happy to deliver one of the many codes I have!)

I agree, since the subject and tone is likely to be different it would make more sense to write it as a separate journal or community (since you have plenty of codes ;-). That also makes it easier for people to choose whether or when to read it.
(For example my jaq_quotes and red_corsairs journals)

Show me the dotted line!
Apr. 30th, 2003 06:24 am (UTC)
I'd be interested to read that...

Sounds fascinating. Would love to.
Apr. 30th, 2003 06:50 am (UTC)
Yes please!
Apr. 30th, 2003 06:53 am (UTC)
Sure thing :)
Apr. 30th, 2003 07:14 am (UTC)
Yes, please! :)
Apr. 30th, 2003 07:15 am (UTC)
Apr. 30th, 2003 07:30 am (UTC)
Yes, please.
Apr. 30th, 2003 07:30 am (UTC)
Sign me up.
Apr. 30th, 2003 07:53 am (UTC)
I'm interested. I agree, though, that it would make a lot of sense to set up a separate journal to do this in. Is there any particular reason why you want to keep it in sbisson?
Apr. 30th, 2003 08:14 am (UTC)
ooh, why not.
Apr. 30th, 2003 08:27 am (UTC)
count me in.
Apr. 30th, 2003 08:30 am (UTC)
Please include me. I was going to suggest setting up a seperate journal for it, but I see I've been beaten to it.
Apr. 30th, 2003 08:57 am (UTC)
Yes, please.
Apr. 30th, 2003 09:16 am (UTC)
Oh yes, I'm interested!
Apr. 30th, 2003 09:36 am (UTC)
Yup - go for it...

I'll show you mine too ;-)
Apr. 30th, 2003 09:38 am (UTC)
Yep, add me too. And OF COURSE I want to see Tigers. About time sweetie-pie! ;)

YAY YAY YAY Simon's writing!

I'd like to jojn, if you don't mind, please.
Apr. 30th, 2003 12:29 pm (UTC)
Sign me up too please - and I second the alter-journal proposal.

Apr. 30th, 2003 01:25 pm (UTC)
Me, please. And I think a second journal os a good idea - maybe a free one, like my other two? ;-)
May. 1st, 2003 02:21 am (UTC)
yes please! ... If you make it a completely separate journal you may find that tracking feedback becomes much simpler. And it's about time that someone set up a proper LJ writers' community in this particular area of LJ (since I know of others, working very effectively, in other areas)

/me wonders if you had time to start this yet and where Tigers is...
