Question for the nerds/geeks (geek/nerds) among you: [Aug. 20th, 2009|10:16 pm]
Young Geoffrey

Is it wrong that I find myself leaving comments on the blogs of writers whose actual books I've yet to read?

Inquiring minds want to know.

It's the internet. This is expected.

(Which writers?)

Yabut ... a'm speciul!

John Scalzi most recently, but also Elizabeth Bear, though in the latter case I have read one of her novels since I first popped up on her journal.

Nope. It keeps them on their toes.

Makes sense

You're right and I should stop worrying. If they don't want random comments they wouldn't make public posts, would they?

I don't see anything wrong with that

Go for it man. I think I've done it a couple of times in my past but that might have been different because it was for YA fiction writers which is less... intense.

"Inquiring minds want to know."

You've used this before and I must say, I adore the phrase and might accidentally steal it someday.

Re: I don't see anything wrong with that

You can definitely steal the phrase, since I stole it myself. I've run across it in quite a few places, though I don't think it's quite so commonplace as to be a cliche.
