Good morning, party people! I am just going to stop in super-fast this morning. I plan on spending my day working on either Dance With the Devil or the untitled Nick/Lexi project. Not sure which yet, but the plan is to write something today. In my defense, yesterday’s blog post was over 2,000 words. I am counting that in the writing win column, but it didn’t get either of my works in progress any closer to being done. That sound you hear is me cracking the whip at myself…
Anyway, there are two reasons I am popping in today: Brad Meltzer and the Batfleck suit…
Last night, as I was laying in bed not sleeping like I should have been, I decided to poke around Instagram. Comic Con is in full swing and the best stuff always pops up in my feed during what I have come to affectionately refer to as my own personal Shangri-La (I will get there next year if IT KILLS ME!).
Being the Batman freak I am, I follow a great fan account on IG – @thebatforce. Last night, the admin of said account posted a video from preview night at #SDCC. I can’t embed the video here, but you can click here to see the video and here’s a still shot:
OMG, right?!?!?! I know. I know. Just breeeeeeeathe. I can’t wait for it either! *wink wink* Side note: go give @thebatforce a follow. Awesome account, I promise!
Also, I’ve mentioned it more than a few times, but I am a huge fan of the Nerdist podcast. They have some of the best interviews ever (except for the Harrison Ford one, but don’t worry Chris Hardwick, that totally wasn’t your fault). Well, I was settling in to do my morning blogging and decided to see who is rocking it with the podcasty goodness today, and I was psyched to see Brad Meltzer up there! The interview is actually from July 1st, but I am just seeing it today.
Brad Meltzer is a writer and a historian. He’s got 20+ titles published, including some incredibly tightly wound historical fiction mysteries, non-fiction, children’s books, and comic books (he even co-wrote a Buffy comic!). His brain is a brain to be envied! I love listening to this guy. You may also recognize him from his shows Decoded (History Channel) and Brad Meltzer’s Lost History (History H2).
I am still listening to the it, but so far, it’s awesome! You can catch it by clicking here. Fantastic interview! Enjoy!
Okay, my loves. I am outtie. This book isn’t going to finish itself!
