It totally crept up on me this year! Since I stepped down from the Secretary role, I’ve not been quite so in the ‘behind the scenes’ loop as previous years, which meant that this wasn’t at the forefront of my mind. However I saw someone post about it just a few days ago and it set my mind to thinking – what could I post about this year?
I have a few thoughts, but for the most part I’ll just be winging it. I’ll have an interview with my friend Anna later in the week, and tomorrow I’ll get to post the second part to Simon Petrie’s story ‘A Night to Remember’. He is writing it THIS week! How cool is that? You can read part one here.
Any thoughts? Any particular topic spanning New Zealand and Speculative Fiction that you’d like to see me blog about? If you have any suggestions (or questions!), throw them at me and I will see what I can come up with. Personally, I am looking forward to exploring some thoughts I’ve been having about my culture and upbringing and how those things have helped shape me as a story teller.
I’ll sign off for now, though I encourage you to check out the SpecFicNZ website at some point as I am sure there will be some links going live in the near future to other posts from Day 1 of blogging week. You can read more about it’s history, and past posts, here.
