I am at Tower Hill School in Wilmington, DE and I am updating my LJ. (Never did this before!) The way the schedule worked out, I have a long break right now, and Jamie the Nice Librarian was kind enough to get me on the Net. Having a blast here (awesome auditorium which makes the speaking part easy – voice is still raw from last week). Waiting for the pizza to arrive to I can eat and talk to some of the high school kids about Speak. Tough life.
Weird experience of the day: their substitute librarian, Kristine, babysat for me when I was a kid in Syracuse. She was a student at the university where my dad was a chaplain. It has been fascinating to hear her talk about how those years (we’re talking life on a college campus in the late ’60s and early ’70s) felt to her. I’m going to get her in touch with Dad – he will be stoked.
Max wrote and suggested that I put some deleted scenes from my novels on the website.
That’s actually in my long-term plan, Max. (Brilliant minds think alike, eh?) I don’t think I’ll get to it until later this summer, though. Depending on how the writing goes, it might be the fall before I can give major attention to the website again.
Which brings me to my question:
What would youse guys like to see on my website that is not there right now? Theo is working on a non-flash version for those of you with slower dial-up connections. There are a few minor tweaking things to do, but before he gets going on someone else’s projects (or his own), I want to make sure I have a rock-solid web foundation that we can add to as new books come out. What information is missing? What pages do you think are the most important? Should we add a site map?
