Peter Orullian joins us in front of a live audience at Westercon 67 for a Q&A. The questions include:
- As a writer, how do you handle reviewing other people’s books?
- How do you compartmentalize your writing to prevent that obsession from displacing everything else?
- How do you create frightening, unique creatures?
- What are the basics about networking at a convention?
- Is there a yield for the average story idea?
- What rules do you follow and what rules do you break when writing epic fantasy?
- What can you do in critique groups to teach craft if you’re avoiding prescriptive critique?
- How strongly do you believe that the audience won’t remember what you’ve told them, but will remember how you said it?

If it makes you feel any better, I listen to these episodes in order to write up the blog entry, and I always think I sound pretentious.
I’m going to be very curious to hear you guys talk about the can-o-wormed topic in detail, because even hearing the question has my head going off in all sorts of directions on how you could try to handle that.
And, better late than never, right?
A transcript, words distilled from the golden tones… for your reading pleasure.
