Like all good conversations, the ‘Writing Strong Women’ posts are spawning sub-discussions and fresh debates in new places at the speed of light. Over on her LJ, Gillian Polack has been musing about gender as performance and the ungendered – or mostly ungendered – performance of being an author. Check it out and join in the conversation: Gillian’s thoughts
Meanwhile, ‘Tymon’s Flight’ has received a new review in the wonderful Specusphere magazine . I’m very pleased, of course – the reviewer gives a lovely and balanced take on the book, indicating what she enjoyed about it and also going into a couple of nitty gritty points about writing that could be improved. (And I wholeheartedly agree.)
In the course of my bragging about said review over on Facebook, one of the commenters assumed the reviewer was a man – and so another branch of the Writing Women conversation was born, which I cannot reproduce for you here in blog-land… suffice to say, we decided that no one ought to review my books for fear of a possible sex change. You have been warned.
