Butterflies & Frozen Things

Earlier this week, Lee Thompson (author of Iron Butterflies Rust and Nursery Rhymes 4 Dead Children) interviewed me for his blog and you can read it here. It was my seventh interview (all of which can be accessed from here) and it was a delightful experience. I quite like interviews. Maybe I'm a Narcissist. I hope not.

Today, I finally uploaded a good portion of my stories to Google Docs. I didn't know it was so easy to do. I'd originally uploaded the odd story and I did each one manually, but it appears I just had to click Ctrl-A to copy my entire flash drive to Google Docs and it did the rest. I may sleep a little easier now. Or I will when I've uploaded my other files. I hope Google Docs doesn't implode.

I finished editing The Menagerie of Frozen Birds this morning and am a little reluctant to leave that icy world behind, but it's onwards and upwards and I have three other short stories with deadlines that I have to get done.

But before I go, if you're of a mind to procrastinate today (well it is the weekend), then check out Draw a Stickman. Although, I chose to draw a stickwoman.

You're awesome, Cate. Keep up the great work!

Aaron Polson said...

You are rather awesome, Cate. (I just saw the TOC for the Best of Necrotic Tissue--'grats for making the cut.)

That's an awesome interview! Go you!

Simon Kewin said...

Great progress all round, Cate : and well done on uploading to Google Docs. You can't have enough back-ups.

Anthony Rapino said...

Cool three times over. :-) Off to read the interview.

And I just read you're "a f***ing Jedi when it comes to painting a picture with words" - nice one. May the force stay strong with you!

Thanks, Lee

Thanks, Aaron. I'm overjoyed to see Natalie has two stories in it.

Thanks, Kate

I'm usually woefully bad at backing up files, Simon.

Thanks, Tony

I saw that too. I shall now have to dress as Princess Leah for Halloween, Ray.
