So, I have a Wordpress blog. Today I wrote a little blog post about Guillermo del Toro's new film and about my inability to fathom the motivations and thought processes of people who insist that things that are tangentially related are in fact deeply connected and related to each other. You can read it here.

I posted a link on my twitter, as you do. I tagged del Toro in it, since it saved characters and anyway famous people never notice when I tag them--

AND THEN HE RETWEETED IT.

WHAT.

I kind of freaked out? a little bit? And naturally my twitter notifications were blowing up all afternoon (less so this evening). And according to my WP dash, the post has gotten over FIVE HUNDRED VIEWS. I mean... what???? IS THIS REAL LIFE?????

I'm a little giddy over it to be honest. I haven't gotten like a new following or anything out of it, but it is kind of warming the cockles of my heart to think that someone I admire deeply as a storyteller might have read something I wrote, and liked it enough to share it.

Holy crap, that's amazing! (Also read your blog post and agree with everything you had to say; what's so bad about a story that stands on its own? It sort of reminds me of the trend in YA books where every "high concept" fantasy or sci-fi story MUST end on a cliffhanger and have a sequel. Just...why?)
