Busy lately, but a couple of things:

Nick Mamatas has a very interesting, thought-provoking post on Greatness. (Me, I don't especially aspire to be great. When I was 16 I did, desperately -- hell, when I was 25 I still did, though I was beginning to doubt my prospects -- but now I just want to be happy. If I write a great story in my lifetime that'd be nice, but I'll probably never know about it anyway, since enduring greatness intrinsically requires a long view. As long as I'm enjoying my work -- and enough readers enjoy it to keep my family fed! -- I'm content to let posterity sort itself out. Doesn't mean I'm not always striving to do better work, though. Part of keeping myself entertained is continuing to challenge myself.)

Neat interview with Dave Schwartz over at Bookslut.
