I’m doing Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) this year, despite not realizing it until about four days in.  I’m already way behind, but I’m not giving up.  Even if I don’t finish it in November, I hope to at least get a detailed outline done.  I’d really like to write a novel.  I’ve resisted it by thinking, “well, I could write a book on magic and get some money,” but no matter what those don’t bring in that much.  So why not amuse myself, do something for the intrinsic reward, and not worry about cash?  Of course, I did write my books on magic for the intrinsic reward; I’ve never had an illusion about how much money a writer makes.  But writing a novel is a crazy, kind of irresponsible thing for an academic to do.  So — I’m doing it.

  1. Long time listener, first time caller. Hate to interrupt your writing groove. I was just wondering if there’s any plan to take Postmodern Magic to a digital edition? I travel a lot and every cubic inch of packing space is valuable. I would love to port PM over to my e-book reader and free up a bit of space.

    • That sounds like a splendid idea. I don’t know of any such plan, and my publisher owns the digital rights. But I could suggest it to them.

  2. Thanks. I’m pretty sure I already hit the “I want a Kindle edition” button on the Amazon website.
