Seiun Award Nomination

So this is pretty cool. We are Legion has been nominated for a Seiun Award Nomination, which is the Japanese equivalent of a Hugo. Here’s the link to the news: https://locusmag.com/2019/04/2019-seiun-awards-nominees/

And a screenshot:

I should note that I found out about this when my saved Google Search for “We are Legion” coughed up the link.

    I saw that the preorder for Outland is out. And I just so happen to have a credit unused.

    The whole series is incredible. I go back and read parts, chuckling over the Bobs and their self-deprecating childishness as they face incredibly challenging stuff out there. The closest thing I’ve ever found to it is Martha Wells’ Murderbot series. Hats off and thanks to both you and her!!

  2. “This project has taught me, though, that I need more discipline in my writing, so I’m going to start imposing deadlines on myself. ” — Status of Things 2019-12-02

    Don’t do it.
    Not deadlines anyway. If you want more discipline do it on the front end with your daily schedule. Or with your work environment. Was it Elmore Leonard who had a separate cottage for writing?

    If you’re looking for sheer productivity, there’s an adventure fiction writer from the mid-1900s (don’t have the name) who talked his manuscripts. Phenomenal productivity. Resultant rough too rough? Writing is rewriting.

    Deadline → stress, burnout or catch a bad cold. A novel is too big a project. You can get into a situation where writing every waking hour of the day won’t be enough. Burning the candle at both ends for more days than you are able, won’t be enough.

    Look at your manufacturing line first before building a wall to hit.

    1. “Deadlines” is probably the wrong word. Maybe “productivity targets.” I’ve gone entire weeks where I barely touched the keyboard. That’s just damned laziness. I think if I set myself a goal of spending at least 2 hours a day at the keyboard (even if I don’t write for 2 hours) I’ll still be ahead of this hippy-dippy “winging it” thing.
