I’m in Austin, Texas now, and today I drove by a place on Lamar called “Quickie Tattoo.” I was thinking how, if I wanted a tattoo, “quickie” wouldn’t be the first thing that attracted me. This, in turn, made me consider when it is okay to have a “quickie” (in the non-sexual sense).
The first thing that sprang to mind is: If some author happened to be hanging around somewhere online and I could shoot him a quickie question, why, that would be fine.
By pure coincidence, I’ll be doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit one week from today. I’ll be fielding questions about everything except for stuff I don’t know anything about. Don’t ask me those things. Anything else is fine.
The exact URL will be posted here and tweeted the morning the 17th, and you can start sending in questions then.
And I’ll have an announcement regarding The Incrementalists and why I love my publisher like, uh, like something that loves something a lot. I won’t spend a lot of time on the announcement, though. It’ll just be kind of a quickie.
