In Case You’re Wondering

The writing on Zoe’s Tale is generally going quite smoothly, thanks, not counting yesterday when for unrelated reasons my brain had the consistency of tapioca. But today in particular things chugged along nicely. I still have far too much writing to do on the book before the end of the month, but there’s not much to be done about that now, and the relative ease of writing this month gives me cause for not-entirely-idiotic optimism.

One thing I will say, although you’ll forgive me if I don’t go into detail at the moment, is that I really like Zoe. It’s not always a guarantee that you’ll really like your main character, and it’s also sometimes difficult to elevate someone who had minor character status into an interesting primary character. But so far Zoe seems up to the task. She’s fun to write, and I like finding out what she does next.

  1. Go Scalzi! w00t! <– Proof of the coming Apocalypse. So keep writing, because I’ll need some good reading while I’m stuck here during the Rapture.

  2. I’m also looking forward to Zoe’s Tale, John. In a totally, “I’m glad it’s you and not me” way, I’m happy the pressure is on. That means I get to read it sooner. :)

    All joking aside, good luck finishing up. We’ll all buy it. And probably buy it again in special edition. And box set. And trade paperpack. And mass market paperback…

    (Well maybe not all those versions, but you know…)

  3. For me, it’s the brain eating that truly sets the zombie apart. Sure, emotional handicaps are an issue, but if you have to pick a feature, the consumption of living grey matter trumps a boring conversationalist in my book any day.
