For those asking why I haven’t been blogging the US election:
It’s because I cannot believe what I’m seeing and hearing. Seriously if I had made up a tenth of what’s been going on and put it in a novel no one would credit it. They’d be all, “The characters keep changing! They don’t make any sense. And one of them seems to be a malfunctioning robot! Also there’s a zombie! I thought this was meant to be realism. What the hell?”
Not to mention that I cannot talk about wolf killers dispassionately. I love wolves. Almost as much as I love quokkas.
Plus I’ve been in a really great mood lately. I don’t want to bugger that up.
So that’s why I’m not blogging the election.
But if you want to know what some other YA authors think check out Maureen Johnson’s YA for Obama social site.
And just so you don’t think I’m being partisan, which I’m not on account of I’m not USian and have no vote in the US of A, here is the YA for McCain site.
Me, I’m retreating back to the simpler and happier times of the 1930s—researching my next book—when there were no earth-shattering world-wide financial crises, no wars, and no environmental disasters. Oh, wait . . .
