Talking to a talent

Wednesday afternoon my wife and I got to talk to a voice from across the sea. Our online acquaintance, known to us as Liloo, let us give her a call. Liloo is an immensely talented young writer who lives in Paris (though she has connections with an astonishing number of places around the world).

Liloo's real name is Aliette de Bodard, and when she's not working for a company that programs guidance codes for missiles, she's writing top-notch fiction. Aliette is a Writers of the Future winner, and has now been published multiple times, with several of her stories being right up there in my all-time-favorites list. My wife has been working on an interview with her for a young new magazine started by the Notebored and Liberty Hall.

Aliette is very good, and it was a pleasure and an honor to chat with her for a bit.

It was a pleasure talking to you both, too.

Now I'll go off and hide somewhere dark to work out the blush thingy... :)

We'll have to do it again sometime, especially now that the "first conversation jitters" are gone.

Started working on that acceptance speech for Writers of the Future yet?

Definitely have to do it again. Don't guarantee the jitters being gone, though :)

Er...acceptance speech...good question. I think this is one of those tasks best left for tomorrow (and tomorrow, and tomorrow... :) )
