I have a mild concussion - AMA!
I don't *think* heaving face-first into a trash can three days ago disinhibited me so much that I'll answer all your publishing questions in painfully honest detail....BUT LET'S FIND OUT, SHALL WE?
I’m going to do another AMA/open thread this week.
Subscribers: ask me (or each other) anything in the comments. I’ll be in and out of there myself for the rest of the week, chiming in wherever I can in with however much useful information I can.
In case this is your first “Glow” AMA rodeo, here are my ground rules:
try to keep the discussion to publishing, the writing life, and creativity.
Don’t use this space to promote your book or pitch me or anyone at Neon — OR ask a “question” that we all recognize as book promo / a pitch in disguise. If you do, I’ll delete.
Be kind and respectful to each other.
I reserve the right to delete anything I want, although I will use my benevolent dictatorial power with discretion.
Yes, I’m doing this AMA to save brain meats on writing an actual newsletter.
In case you haven’t seen my pity-grubbing tweets about this already, I bit it eyeballs-first into the edge of my kitchen trashcan on Sunday. Now I’m getting over a mild concussion. (How this happened is a long story, but it involves trying too hard to push down the garbage to forestall taking out the garbage—as well as the fact that my kitchen trash is one of those “Rubbermaid in pull-out undersink drawer” deals.)
The symptoms I’m getting over are not that big a deal and mostly ocular, AFAIK, although they’re coming from my brain vs. my eyeballs—jazzy fluorescent wiggle lines, close-work tracking difficulty, etc.
I don’t think any frontal-lobe trauma is disinhibiting me to the point that I’ll reply to your questions with any unusual, er, honesty, but only one way to find out! Ask away.
