Author Talk with Christopher Hopper and Wayne Thomas Batson

You may remember a coupla weeks back I posted a few times about the tremendous opportunity I had to work with another fantasy author in what we termed, "Writer's Bootcamp." It was anything but a military drudgery. We had a creative field day, brainstorming and helping each other break through writer's block.

You may also remember that we spent quite a bit of time at a pub called The Banshee, crafting ideas in the spirit of (if not the genius of) Tolkien and Lewis. During that time, we set up a video camera and answered a few Frequently Asked Questions. Check out the video…if you're really bored. LOL

Oh, and if you're expecting "author clothes" and stuffy stilted "writer chat," you might not want to watch. ;-)

The video is above. Enjoy it if you have 10 minutes to kill. HA!!

Awww man, there is no way on my comp and with my connection I'll be able to see it. Ah well, I'll have to throw myself on your mercy and beg if there is any particular brilliance you'll share it later.

That was 10 minutes well spent. It's great to see part of the process and both of your motivations behind your writing. Thanks!

Excellent work Wayne! It was very thought provoking and entertaining as well. I hope you two are able to do more of these in the future.
