Livewriting in Belgium!
Here's something you don't hear every day: I'm going to Belgium to livewrite a book!
(If you do hear that every day, don't tell me. I want to feel special.)
Here's the deal: at the end of March, I am getting on a plane and flying to Ghent, which is in Belgium, where they have this place called Vooruit, where they are having a crazy-cool festival called The Game is Up! 2011/a> [oops, not 2001. unless they give me a time machine as well as a plane ticket], wherein they have asked me to livewrite. And livewrite I shall.
The book is called The Archivists, and the tagline is "Prehistory is a myth." I don't want to say much more than that, except that it takes place across three different time periods, is utterly mind-bending in its scope and complexity, and will feature at least a few tanks. Oh yes, tanks. Just imagine what I'm going to do with tanks.
If you're going to be anywhere near Belgium at the end of March, please stop by and say hello. We can do a party, and drink chocolate milk and eat cookies or whatever it is they do in Belgium besides having crazy-cool festivals.
Oh, and I really must thank the super-fantastical Jan Oda for pulling this all together. It was her idea from the start, her perseverance that made it happen, and it will most likely be her sending my body back to Canada in a coffin when it's all done. Because seriously: how many times can I do a #3D1D before I die? :P
