Charlie’s Diary: Genre neuroses 101

I don’t really care if you read the above-linked post, although it is interesting and amusing.  I found it via John Scalzi’s blog.  The important part of this post is that Stross is a cool author.  As is Scalzi.  I don’t remember how I first came across Stross' novel Accelerando, which he had shared online.  I imagine I found it through BoingBoing.  But I read it, and enjoyed it, and kept reading his stuff.  I think Iron Sunrise is my favorite thus far.

I really should read more.  It makes me want to write, which is both good and bad.  It’s good because I like writing, but it’s bad because I can never seem to keep at it long enough to finish anything, so it’s frustrating.   Maybe I’ll get a chance to hit the library this weekend.
