New Projects

I gave notice at my day job today. Fourteen years I've been there. Wrapping it up in the next two weeks to go be a writer full-time. I know. All of a sudden, isn't it? Well, it's been a long process of working in the wee hours of the day and night, but I've finally reached a point where I can't do everything all the time. I have reached the point of needing to simply.

Less tech work. More writing.

That seems pretty simple.

Of course, it get complicated when Neal Stephenson twitters today that "Our first demo of the new novel I am writing with Greg Bear, Nicole Galland, Mark Teppo, and others" will be happening next week in San Francisco (handy link to announcement).

This is the Sekrit Project. Called The Mongoliad, it's well, go look. I probably won't be here for a bit when you get back. Things to do and all.

Congratulations upon congratulations. That is a pair of deeply fantastic announcements.
Thank you, sir. Any reason to get you to throw the santa suit icon.
Congrats on taking the plunge, and best of luck with the new project!
Thanks. Yes, "plunge" it is. We'll see how my swimming lessons hold up.
Woot@!
Ah, what the hell is the emoticon sign for devil horns? Sign. Getting old. But, yeah, Woot@! it is.
grats man
thanks, man.
Excellent news! Congrats (and cupcakes.) *G*
Any reason for cake, you know.
Dude! Congratulations, man! I wish you the best, and hope for tons of successes. Cause then I say "I roomed with him at VP, way back when..."

Seriously, that is awesome. Make it happen. Make it rock!

- yeff
It will rock. Yes, sir, it will. I will force it if I have to.
Your project sounds awesome, Mark! And quitting a job is satisfying and scary. Go you!
Completely terrifying, but there comes a time when small boys must leave the security of the nest and strike out on their own. :)
I like the vibe of that project, and I'll be looking forward to reading your contribution.

Excellent. Thank you. We look forward to entertaining you.
I'm late to the party, but wanted to add my voice to the chorus. Congratulations all around, my friend!
Thanks, man. Though, this party is just getting started. ;)
Congrats. Keep us all up to date. Next time you're in Madison I'll buy you a cthulhu burger like the one I had last time we went out to dinner. Trust me, you'll be full for a week. No starving writers at my table!

PS: Wiscon misses you. :(
I miss Wiscon. Had to cut my travel this year, and am missing all the clan something fierce this weekend.
Not much of a clan there this year. I'm feeling . . . homeless? Maybe homey-less.
I'd missed this one. Sweet deal with the novel!
