darkfirewolfe asked: Blue, Read, & Money
- Blue: What song do you listen to when you’re feeling down?
Oh God, so many. It depends on whether I’m wallowing (“Running Up That Hill,” by Kate Bush or “Hurt,” by Nine Inch Nails are good choices for that), or trying to cheer myself up (Anything by Florence + The Machine, the Cure or 70s Eno or Bowie works for that).
- Read: What was the last book you read?
I generally read a few books in parallel. Fiction was Kill City Blues, by Richard Kadrey. I’m enjoying The Wicked + The Divine in comics… Non-fiction was The Invention of Murder, by Judith Flanders. And I’ve been reading a lot of Vampire: the Masquerade books again because I’m working on the Toreador and Giovanni sections of the 20th Anniversary clanbook.
- Money: What would you do with 1 million dollars?
Pay off my student loans. Get out of debt generally, and then buy a nice house with a separate cottage in the back for writing. Then, if I could, live off the interest while I work on getting my novels out there. :P
