...of Guy Gavriel Kay, so it was a great treat to have my first coffee of the day while listening to this interview over at Bookninja. I especially like what Kay has to say about imaginative empathy, but it's his words about constraints that really hit home. That's largely because I spent the past few days working on a sequence of poems that I started last summer. The last poem happens to be an acrostic. Yes, an acrostic. I never thought I'd use that form in this manner. I must say I'm surprised at the result.
Guy Gavriel Kay will be at the Saskatchewan Festival of Words, which is coming right up. The festival schedule has been posted. I always have a tough time deciding who to see.
