Interviews 83-86

Oh geeze, I’ve missed posting the author interviews I’ve done on TBPL Off the Shelf since April! So here’s a list of all four, including yesterday’s interview. ūüôā

In May I interviewed Elle Andra-Warner about researching historical subjects, travel writing, and the most interesting facts she learned about the lighthouses of the North Short of Lake Superior.

In June I interviewed Eleanor Albanese about what drew her to fiction writing from theatre, how her fiction writing process differs from her theatre process, and the role of midwives in rural Northern Ontario a century ago.

In August I interviewed Roy Blomstrom about writing a wide variety of forms and genres, what drew him to science fiction for his newest novel, and writing a multiverse.

And this month I interviewed Martha Wells about where she got the idea for Murderbot, writing engaging AI characters, and her newest book, Fugitive Telemetry.

Interview #27!

The twenty-seventh interview on TBPL Off the Shelf went live today!¬† This time, rather than interviewing an author, I interviewed local magician and comedian Michael Picard about the magic apps he’s developing, meeting David Copperfield, and performing magic door to door.¬† You can find the interview here!

Also, I should note that Michael will be performing a magic show in the Waverley Resource Library’s auditorium on March 16th if anyone is interested in going to see him!

#WriteFriday – April 3rd

Happy Good Friday everyone!

This week,¬†whatever I was planning on doing has been sidetracked by the April author interview for TBPL Off the Shelf. ¬†You see, I conducted my first interview over Skype. ¬†I recorded the interview using Evaer, which was great (once it was working properly – I forgot to put my registration key in at the beginning so the recording kept stopping after 5 minutes). ¬†But now I need to transcribe everything and put together the TBPL Off the Shelf post. ¬†Normally I would do such things at work, but I can’t transcribe while working at the desk. ¬†So it looks like this is going to be my plan for #WriteFriday.

Of course, if i manage to get the interview transcribed and whatnot, I will do some personal writing. ¬†I’ll keep you posted on my progress as the day goes!
