This evening I participated in my first twitter chat. It makes for an interesting interview format because it was a conversation but in 140 character bursts. Byran Thomas Schmidt is the charming host and he opened the evening with this simple mission statement:
“Our goal is to talk with writers, editors, and others about the craft of writing, specifically related to writing speculative fiction.”
We talked about Shades of Milk and Honey, my writing process, puppetry, and SFWA.
You can follow next week’s chat with Jay Lake by using the hastag #sffwrtcht on twitter. If you didn’t catch the chat with me tonight, you can read a transcript via bryanthomasschmidt: Science Fiction And Fantasy Writer’s Chat 2/16/11 with Mary Robinette Kowal.
