You guys are awesome.  

Yesterday’s short story meme has hit upon the following:

- at least 5 stories I’d actually like to write
- something startlingly close to the plot of an upcoming book
- one story I’ll never write, but probably it’s not the one you think it is
- the observation that none of you pay attention to the structure of a Walker Papers title, and
- a clear predilection amongst my readers to see Morrison in leather pants

Later I’ll post a few responses. :)

In my defense, I thought I was naming a short story and not a book! :)

Well, you are, but I've kept the same naming pattern with the novella and the one short story I've written, so. :)

pffft. Blind adherence to tradition is why the bad guys win! :)

I thought "The Blarney Stoned" was really close. Its a noun and verb. :) you know... Walking Dead... Thunderbird Falls... Banshee Cries... Rabbit Tricks (Urban Shaman... not so much... but i thought it was a bit of an outlier.... )

I'm betting the Old Races x Walker Paper Crossover is the nixed idea though... because I think I read somewhere on your site that they were distinctly separate universes.

Actually, yeah, Blarney Stoned was pretty close. It'd just have to have "The" dropped from it. And it /is/ the nixed one, because I'm profoundly reluctant to cross those universes even in jest. :)

Snap. I hate it when I'm right
