A little while ago I was asked to be part of SF Signal's Mind Meld feature. I was really flattered because, well, no one in the genre community has cared about my opinion before (that's what you get for running a small blog, which is fine.). I put off writing it because I couldn't think of what to say for far too long. Then, one night I decided to just write it out and get it done.
I actually wrote it late at night because these days that's really the only time I can write (baby-free). I was about 3/4 of the way asleep, so who knows if what I said actually makes sense. I just finished reading the Mind Meld feature and realized that there are some pretty incredible people and opinions out there. There are some really well known authors (N.K. Jemisin, Pamela Sargent and others) as well as bloggers (Stefan Raets, Justin Landon etc). I actually kind of feel like I shouldn't be keeping the same company as these people because I admire them so much and they are so well known, but I'm there at the bottom (which is the right spot for me).
I know I sound self depreciating, but I'm really not. I am really flattered that I was part of this and the insights of others give me a lot to think about regarding the quality and content of my own reviews.
Anyway, go check it out. There are some great insights posted and some interesting opinions.
Here's the link.
