    Okay just putting this out there. You have all been reading my posts for quite some time. Should I write a book? AGREE / DISAGREE (I mean everything I write is captivating, right?)

    Okay on a serious note, WHY?!?!?!?!?!?! I understand that this is important material and it is VERY important to him, but I feel like I need to direct JMS' writing assignments. He doesn't have time for this when there are so many other things I want him to write.

      What makes you think he's not writing them? Trouble is, he's written *scads* of things that we've never gotten a chance to see. Given that he's ususally got at least 5 projects going at the same tine, there's a *bunch* of stuff that could keep us entertained for ages if we could only experience it!

        As part of JMS' Patreon introduction (https://www.patreon.com/syntheticworlds/posts), he mentioned that the new writing book will be coming out in the spring of 2020 - about the same time as his new novel.

          Has he said anything about what kind of book it is?

            Not so far, that I know of. I notice that it's a book on writing, and doesn't specify scriptwriting. Also, in one of his posts he listed quite a long string of topics that might be covered and it's everything from making a living to characterization to exposition and so forth.

              In any case it will be interesting to see what it is.
