New Column -- Writers' Obligations

I have a new column up at Romancing the Blog today. This time I'm talking about what writers owe to their readers. As usual, my take is that it's kind of complicated. :) Drop by and tell me what you think.



PS -- for those of you waiting patiently for the next chunk of A Lost Boy, yes, you can assume that this issue has been weighing heavily on my mind recently. [cough] I am still working on it, but this has gone a lot longer than I expected and I've had some other obligations pop up, so Lost Boy is sharing my writing time with a couple of other stories. Also, I had a development occur at the end of the next chapter which (if I leave it as it is) is going to end up having some severe repercussions in the rest of the story. (You weren't all that fond of Thewlis, right...? [duck]) I actually have about 2.5 chapters done, plus some other disconnected verbage which demanded to be written Right The Bleep NOW, even though I've never written out of order before in my life :/ but I can't actually post any of it until I'm sure the Development is going to work. It'd be tough to change it while staying within the bounds of the verse, but if the rest of the story just doesn't work with it, I'm going to have to figure out some way to make a change fit. Until I know one way or the other, though, I can't commit by posting. [headdesk] Anyway, I appreciate everyone's patience, seriously. Thanks and hugs to all of you.

Oh, and seeing Fast and Furious this last weekend makes me want even more to finish the novel so I can give Mark and Paul their own story (probably a lot shorter) and wrap things up for them, 'cause they're hot and pretty and need to get back together. :)
