Of interest to all those amongst us who like to post a WIP.

Neil Gaiman takes on fans harassing fantasy author George RR Martin ([livejournal.com profile] grrm ) for being slow to update his story. As Neil points out, "George R.R. Martin is not your bitch... George R. R. Martin is not working for you."

Once again NG proves himself hand-crafted of pure and unadulterated awesome.

Mood:: 'relaxed' relaxed
Music:: A documentary about the disappearing bees
location: Yorkshire

I've heard this said many times, but never as perfectly and incisively. The man is impossible not to be in awe of.

Do you follow him on Twitter too?

No, I do read the feeds of his blog though.

Amen!! George RR Martin is not at our beck and call .... get with the program people .... he has such things as RL just as much as YOU do!!!

It's great to see this old fandom argument being played out in the real world by known authors.

Believe me, I have enough to read at the moment in published authors not to be worried about when one of them is publishing their next piece of work! I must have 60 unread books in my library!

I read that blog the other day and it was very interesting.

I like NGs blog, always interesting. He doesn't update as often as he used to though, now he Twitters so eagerly. :o)
