Crowdsourcing here and at Facebook: I am late like the March Hare/White Rabbit, to start with Twitter. As a result,@jimottaviani|gtlabs|a few other obvious usernames are taken. So, any thoughts on a non-obvious username that might work well?

Acc. to Stephen King, "2nd Draft = 1st Draft - 10%". If I manage it for WE NEVER SLEEP I'll have a novella, since what I have now is a 1st draft of 43,838 words.

TCAF is this weekend (May 5-6), at the Toronto Reference Library. I'll be right next to Leland Myrick, so it'll be even better than usual! Hope to see you there!
The Toronto Comic Arts Festival exists to promote the breadth and diversity of comics, and what is considered comics, as legitimate medium of literary and artistic worth. TCAF will take place in Toron...

Going to Pennsylvania this week, talking about comics: http://tinyurl.com/7wpd4ct .
Hey, it's time to go to conventions! I'm only at Wildcat (in Williamsport, PA) for one day, but the guest list is great so you'll want to stay for both days of the show. On the 12th, I&#39...

Much to my delight, FEYNMAN is back on the bestseller list this week. It's popped on and off a bunch since its release, but I can't figure out what to attribute its (re)appearances to. So, I appeal to the collective wisdom of all you friends out there: any hypotheses as to why?

John: Ripple effect might be just right, in fact -- the metaphor at least accounts for peaks and troughs!

And thanks for saying it's good, Jim! I'm grateful, and have come to think that maybe it is. (I say "maybe" because there are days when I see it only as a bound volume of pages that scream "You could have done that better!" staring at me from the shelf. You may know that feeling...) Anyway, my neuroses aside, I'm glad people think so, but also doubt that's enough, since lots of good books don't even make the list in the first place.

Someone I've never met said hello, having recognized me from TV. I am confident that I handled that with maximal bewilderment and minimal poise and elegance.
