A few things that have intrigued me this week… mostly my writerly/readerly sensibilities, but I found interesting nonetheless…
First, from Neil Gaiman’s blog he mentions a couple of projects that he is working on, notably:
Currently I’m mostly writing the HBO American Gods first episode. I’m really enjoying it, partly because a lot of what I’ve written isn’t in the book. It’s implied in the book, or talked about generally, or referred to obliquely, but it’s scenes I hadn’t written. So I feel that I’m doing new work, even if it’s not new. If you see what I mean.And, strangely, it seems to be feeding in to the next American Gods book, which is what I’m sort of working on right now. (Actually, I’m writing a short story that comes after Monarch of the Glen and before The Next Book. But it feels organically needed.)
“Harry Potter” creator J.K. Rowling will publish her first book for adults, it was announced Thursday. Publisher Little, Brown will bring the book to shelves simultaneously in the U.S. and Britain at an unannounced future date. Its title has not yet been revealed.
