Conversations with my Coworkers

Went out with my workout group yesterday, and while we walked over to the Y, one of my groupmates turned to me and said, "I had a dream about you last night Kameron!"

"Great," I said. "Was I typing a lot of things furiously?"

"No, it was this post-apocalyptic world and you were this... this avenging angel, and you had this flaming sword and you were leading this army. This whole army! It was so weird. I mean, flaming sword!"

"Are you serious?"

"Seriously!"

"You have no idea how awesome I think that is." Because seriously, people, that is FULL OF AWESOME.

"Maybe I just ate some bad chili," she said.

Ah, bad chili.

I love my coworkers.

...and you also just totally admitted in public that Nyx is your Mary Sue.

Kameron Hurley said...

As if that isn't going to be blindingly obvious to everyone who knows me when the book comes out...

You realize that in book 2, she gets a chronic illness? To a casual reader, it'll all make sense, but folks who know me will find it kind of jarring. I knew that going in. We'll see how it all falls out.
