Title: Meet-Up #1 of 2012!
Post by: Reenie-La on March 20, 2012, 09:37:18 PM
Okay, so I figured since there isn't a thread for this in the Meet-up Board that I would make it this time! ^^
((I hope that's okay))

Scott-la said it'd be today (Tuesday, March 20th) at 8PM US Eastern. So be sure to get on to ask your questions at the appropriate time for your timezone! (("Note that with the time change in the US, that means 11AM here Wednesday morning here in Australia, and midnight Tuesday in Britain." -Scott))

For those who don't know what a Meet-up is it where Scott gets online to answer all of our questions, (or as many as he can), no matter how ridiculous.

Everyone good now?  ;D
See you all at 8:00pm EST!

Since I probably won't be on at 8, I'll post my questions now.

-Is there any more info on the Uglies movie?
-Choose a fruit: pineapples or Santa Claus melon?
-I was going to bring you some pie when I saw you in Austin... But my mom wouldn't let me. :c
-Have you had any pie lately? If not, you should have a piece for me. :3
-Uglies is a trilogy with a fourth book, right? My friend says it isn't a trilogy because of Extras.
-If you were trapped in an elevator for an hour with 5 other people, who would they be?

That's all I have for now... I'll probably post more later. xD

I, as well, will probably not be able to get on tonight, so I have some questions:

1. Are you going to write any books/series that aren't part of Leviathan and are more futuristic like Uglies, etc?
2. I know you get this question everytime, but will there be an Uglies movie? If so, what company was it signed to?
3. Are you aware that Az has a fan club for his pants?
4. Are you aware that this is the link to his fan club? ----> http://scottwesterfeld.com/forum/index.php?topic=8348.0
5. Are you aware that these are his pants?
(https://encrypted-tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQhX1PnKslpzJm8YhB8kibBdjCGIm9GS46d7KGeAO9kav4QQdCz)
6. When you were writing about Az, did you ever stop and think, "Wow. This guy has some [insert ugly/pretty/special word here] pants!"?
7. If so, where did this genius come from?
8. Can you confirm that the conspiracy that Zane materialized from Az's pockets as false? It seems like a completely RIDICULOUS cult starter if you ask me. ;]
9. Did you, yourself, ever marvel at the pants of Az?
10. Are these questions about Az annoying?
11. Did Az really just pretend to die then come back into the past to write his recollection of what happened, otherwise known as Uglies by Scott Westerfeld? Is it he who is sitting infont of your computer? IS YOUR REAL NAME AZ?????
12. Am I the first to be such enthusiAZtic?
13. QUICK! You are being attacked by man-eating purple turtles and grab the object immediately to your right to defend yourself. What is that object?

Please and Thank You, Almighty Master Scott. :)

Unicorns and Parachute Pants,
Kay<3

Aw, I won't be able to go either. :(
I have some questions too!

1. Why are all the titles of Leviathan biblical?
2. Which of your characters would you most want to hug right now?
3. How do you pronounce 'Bovril'?
4. What would Deryn do if someone licked her?

2. If so, have you read the others?

Okay. When you posted that it was 4:40, my time stamp said that it was 5:40, therefore you are one hour BEHIND my time (which happens to be eastern time) therefore, you will also be 1 hour behind when it is 8PM eastern time (which is when the meet up is) therefore, for you, he meet up will be 7PM

Scott-sensei:
i recently fell in love with fullmetal alchemist so my first two questions are about it
1) who is your favorite fma character?
2) are you aware that Deryn and Alek are sort of parallels to Ed and Winry? (If Winry were in that world she would have joined the military disguised as a boy because of how important machines are and Ed would love darwinism and he can be quite emotional and stubborn, just like alek! yeah winry might be a clanker and ed might be a darwinist, but when you think about it... :) this is how the conqueror of shamballa should have been! lol)
3) would you rather be a peep, a midnighter, a special or a soldier in leviverse wwI?
4) are you a clanker or darwinist?

Hey! This is so cool!

1. I really believe if you give children/ young adults thoughtful books they'll grow up to be thoughtful adults. Because of this, it's my DREAM to be an editor. Do you have any advice?
2. Do you plan on writing any more books set in New York?

Hey Scott-la. Long time no see. :)
Before I bombard you, I thought this was funny. Just today I was about to use the anathema effect as evidence in a CA paper. I then stopped to look it up and found out that it wasn't real. Not cool.
Ok. *cracks knuckles* Question time.

1. I read a theory that Shay had a thing for Tally, and now I'm seeing hints of that everywhere. Am I just crazy, or was there really a crush going on?
2. Editing/revision is one of the hardest parts of the editing process for me. Any tips?
3. I'm deathly afraid of letting other people read my writing, and when I do I usually just get 'Oh, that's nice'. How do you get good feedback?
4. How does one go about getting an agent?
5. If you weren't a writer, what would you want to be?
6. Why did you become a writer?

HI SCOTT! Do you remember me from Twitter? It was Mara and I who convinced you to do this meet-up!

When will you come to Toronto again for a book signing? Maybe for the Manuel of Aeronautics? CANADA NEEDS SOME LOVE!
Do you enjoy living in the US more or Australia?
What are you working on now other than the second Uglies manga?
Who is/are your favourite author(s)?
What do you do when you write and can’t focus?
What about when you’re stuck for ideas or phrasing/wording?
In how much detail do you plan out your books in?  Just the basic structure and characters or you already know what each chapter will be?
Will you write a companion novel to So Yesterday because it was awesome yet confusing?

Answering the questions of Moonie.

1) Lilit was pretty hot for Deryn. She got a crush on her when she thought she was a boy, and it didn't end just because she found out otherwise.

2) I think if Alek had realized he had a crush on Dylan, it would have blown his little mind, and made it impossible for them to be friends. So I didn't go in that direction.

3) She didn't have much to bind.

4) London.

5) Sounds good. They're about the same age, after all

Here's a question, when I was reading Uglies the first time, I thought Tally was a morion, (Honestly she broke the amulet and didn't throw it in a river?) Did you intend her to be like that? Or did she just evolve that way?

So,
1. Who do you like better, Alek or Deryn?  (Personally, I think Alek's a complete idiot.  No offense.)
2. Which book in the Leviathan series is your favorite?
3. If you had to name the Lady Boffin's Loris what would you name it?
4. What's Fitzroy's first name?
5. Do you speak any languages other than English?
6. What would you do if a squirrel fell out of the sky and landed on your head?
7. ill you be going on tour for the Manual of Areonautics?
8. (This is a question from my one friend.)  Do you ship Varlow?

Heh heh.  Lots of questions.  THANKS.

i recently fell in love with fullmetal alchemist so my first two questions are about it
1) who is your favorite fma character?
2) are you aware that Deryn and Alek are sort of parallels to Ed and Winry? (If Winry were in that world she would have joined the military disguised as a boy because of how important machines are and Ed would love darwinism and he can be quite emotional and stubborn, just like alek! yeah winry might be a clanker and ed might be a darwinist, but when you think about it... :) this is how the conqueror of shamballa should have been! lol)
3) would you rather be a peep, a midnighter, a special or a soldier in leviverse wwI?
4) are you a clanker or darwinist?

Answering the questions of Moonie.

1) Lilit was pretty hot for Deryn. She got a crush on her when she thought she was a boy, and it didn't end just because she found out otherwise.

2) I think if Alek had realized he had a crush on Dylan, it would have blown his little mind, and made it impossible for them to be friends. So I didn't go in that direction.

3) She didn't have much to bind.

4) London.

5) Sounds good. They're about the same age, after all

Ah, thank you! Excellent answers. <3

Hey Scott-la. Long time no see. :)
Before I bombard you, I thought this was funny. Just today I was about to use the anathema effect as evidence in a CA paper. I then stopped to look it up and found out that it wasn't real. Not cool.
Ok. *cracks knuckles* Question time.

1. I read a theory that Shay had a thing for Tally, and now I'm seeing hints of that everywhere. Am I just crazy, or was there really a crush going on?
2. Editing/revision is one of the hardest parts of the editing process for me. Any tips?
3. I'm deathly afraid of letting other people read my writing, and when I do I usually just get 'Oh, that's nice'. How do you get good feedback?
4. How does one go about getting an agent?
5. If you weren't a writer, what would you want to be?
6. Why did you become a writer?

Post by: scott_himself on March 21, 2012, 11:08:13 AM
The questions of tridecagirl at 53. (And from now on, please limit your posts to ONE QUESTION!).

1. I read a theory that Shay had a thing for Tally, and now I'm seeing hints of that everywhere. Am I just crazy, or was there really a crush going on?

I think it's pretty obvious that she's got a big thing for Tally. Not necessarily sexual, but she feels betrayed whenever she realizes that she's not as important to Tally as vice versa.

2. Editing/revision is one of the hardest parts of the editing process for me. Any tips?

Take a break before editing. Like, some put it in a drawer for a while.

3. I'm deathly afraid of letting other people read my writing, and when I do I usually just get 'Oh, that's nice'. How do you get good feedback?

Going online is good. It's scarier, but it's a much bigger world. You can always ignore the annoying people.

4. How does one go about getting an agent?

There are whole books on this. But I'm the wrong person to ask, because I haven't had to get one in many years.

5. If you weren't a writer, what would you want to be?

Game designer.

6. Why did you become a writer?

Got fired from regular job.

"Do you believe in the underpants fairy? (This is a totally legit question, and it's a very serious matter...) :|"

I tend not to believe in supernatural beings!

"Is there any news on the Uglies movie?"

The script is due the day HG comes out. So that means they think it will get studio backing based on the strength of HG.

"It's my DREAM to be an editor one day. Do you have any advice?"

Keep reading loads of books!

"Are you going to write any more books set in New York?"

I'm writing one now.

"Do you have any plans for future books/ a new series?"

Yes. I'm about 30,000 words in. Not sure if it's a series or a standalone.

The rest is secret.

I don't outline. I just know the ending and the themes. I let my characters do all the plotting.

I'm pretty lazy, really. I mostly play Dice Wars. (DO NOT GOOGLE DICE WARS OR YOU WILL BECOME LAZY TOO.)

2.) Are you going to make a Zane's story for Uglies or a David's Story? That would be cool!

1) who is your favorite fma character?

Ed.

2) are you aware that Deryn and Alek are sort of parallels to Ed and Winry? (If Winry were in that world she would have joined the military disguised as a boy because of how important machines are and Ed would love darwinism and he can be quite emotional and stubborn, just like alek! yeah winry might be a clanker and ed might be a darwinist, but when you think about it...  this is how the conqueror of shamballa should have been! lol)

YES! That's pretty true, but didn't realize it.

3) would you rather be a peep, a midnighter, a special or a soldier in leviverse wwI?

Probably a Special.

4) are you a clanker or darwinist?

Darwinist. Walking machines make me carsick.

"what is shay's sexuality? does she even know?"

You will see in Book 2 of the graphic novels. She was having a thing that Tally (being Tally) was not aware of.

"is the genre of said new book a secret?"

It's sort of paranormal romance, but more meta.

"have/can you tour(ed) in Canada? And I mean... Eastern Canada (like... ugh, I don't want to say where I live...)"

I was in Toronto and Ottawa two and a half years ago.

"Are you going to die someday?"

My words are immortal! (But the rest of me, not so much.)

Also, I didn't make it clear enough that people had all kinds of different skin colors, and that the pretties were racially averaged. So really, the models on the covers are too white.

Would you ever consider putting a fan into The Uglies Movie, even as a extra?

That's a good idea. I SHALL CONSIDER IT.

Do Alek and Deryn have kids someday?

That is up to you, the reader, to decide.

What starter Pokemon would Deryn and Alek choose?
sorry about being so random 

You have exceeded my area of expertise.

"Is manual going to have fancy new info like the Uglies's Guide? Or just pictures?"

Lots of info. LOTS of pictures. (It also updates you on what the characters are doing "now.")

"Are you feeling overwhelmed with questions right now?"

WHY WOULD I FEEL OVERWHELMED????

"can you please write a short story on the bloodbath thread (where we make funny/weird stories about Cacti, Manly hipster beards, and Newkirk passing out)?!"

WHAT is this thread?

"So what do natural born pretties like Nana Love do after they turn 12?"

"Sometimes I get really disillusioned about writing - I figure it'll never be good enough, no one will like it, and I can't make a living off of it, so why keep trying. Do you ever feel like this, and how do you overcome it?"

I didn't publish a novel till I was 34. So you can begin to think about getting bummed out when you're 35.

"Can you write a book set in Victorian England?"

There are so many of those.

"my brother just said to tell you to grew a mustache. "

Beat him to it.

"Was Volger angry that Alek threw away ze letter?"

RATHER.

"Specificly D Gray Man?"

My friends like it, but I've never read it.

"When you go outside or like, walk around a city or something, do lots of people recognize you?"

Not unless it's a library conference or something. But it has happened once or twice.

"Scot are you biased agianst Clankers?"

I like machines too!

"Do you like cupcakes?"

Heck, yeah.

"I want pie now.... STRAWBERRY RHUBARB"

ME TOO.

In my upstairs office in Sydney.

"What do you think of our usernames?"

They're all very YOU.

"What other authors do you know?"

Holly Black. Cassie Clare. John Green. Emily Jenkins. David Levithan. Garth Nix. Maureen Johnson. Robin Wasserman. SO MANY MORE>\.

"do you like the music of Evanescence?"

Don't know them! I have toured in Toronto a couple of times.

"Did you intend for Deryn's last name to be linked to the royal Stewarts? I found that fascinating..."

I just liked the cuttingness and smartness of it.

"Is Jaspert still alive?"

Well, he'd be over 100 . . .  (Heh.)

"I do have a question but I'm new at this. I'm writing my thesis on Dialogue vs Exposition in YA Lit. Which do you feel is essential in order to grab the reader's attention?? I'd appreciate it if you can give me an answer! Thanks!"

Dialog seems to be a dominant storytelling mode in YA. Many writers I know do "dialog spines" and then write the scenes around them.

"You realize that Quite Peculiar has its own TVTROPES PAGE?
"

YES.

O.O

Backstory of PAUL:

I was trying to find the Leviathan journal/sketchbook, and found it on barnes and noble. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/leviathan-journal-simon-schuster/1017712754 However, there was a typo! "The Leviathan Journal is the perfect companion to Paul Westerfeld’s gripping novel, Leviathan. The blank pages leave plenty of room for you to chronicle your own adventures—or just keep track of your favorite passages from the book!"
So I decided Paul was his evil twin, made this graphic, and sent it to Scott. (He posted it on the blog and twitter. I was proud.)

Yes, but the price is that YOUR FIRST CHILD MUST BE NAMED DERYN. (Or Smurfy.)

"When was the last time someone tickled you?"

I am IMMUNE.

"What are your political views?"

The free health care in Australia works much better than the clusterfart that is US health care. That is my main political view.

"Is An Chinese? I always assumed she was"

Of Chinese descent, yes.

"Who was the easiest character to picture in your mind?"

Dess and Deryn. D's are good.

"-If you were trapped in an elevator for an hour with 5 other people, who would they be?"

THEY WOULD BE RANDOM.

"Do you ever find yourself using the jargon you created in your own books (e.g. barking spiders, adding -la or -wa to the ends of names etc.) in real life?"

Oh, yes. Also, John Green uses jargon from my books in conversation.

"ARE YOU COMING TO OHIO!?!?!?!?!"

NOOOO. (sorry.)

"Do you like gummie bears? (I must have at least ONE food question of mine answered. It's a tradition"

Ew. No.

"Have you read The Fault In OUr Stars and if so, what did you think of it?"

Haven't read it yet.

"Have you ever read one of the RPs on here?"

Nope. I should, though.

"Have you ever listened to any German songs? If not, can I suggest Tokio Hotel?"

Yes, I've heard of them. And I like Nina Hagen.

"So... how often do you make fun of John Green? (Especially his fear of heights.)"

Whenever possible. Though Justine is really in charge of teasing John.

"Why didn't Alek kill Eddie when he had the chance?"

Because killing is wrong.

"AGAIN! Will you be on tour again within the next year? :"

Not sure yet! (Yes, not the best answer. And I WAS answering you about the Uglies extra contest. It's a good idea.)

"Do you watch Avatar: The Last Airbender? If so, do you ship Kataang or Zutara?"

Yes. No.

"Scott-La, are any of the pics going to be full-color? (OH PLEASE GOD PLEASE. PLEEEEEEEEASE.)"

Yes, the Manual is full color.

"And is there anything else that would help a fanartist in hir fanarting?"

Um. I don't know much about art.

"Did you know that a while ago (my first incarnation) I made a girlfriend for Newkirk? IT's a potato named Shirley C:"

No. I did not know that.

"Do you see Tally as a man stealer?"

Hmm. She's interested in the guy with the most status in any group. It's not about the stealing with her, but it does happen.

"If you had to name the Lady Boffin's Loris what would you name it?"

IT IS WRONG TO NAME THE FABRICATED BEASTIES. (But let's go with Ned.)

"To add to this, was the reason the lorises were created to spy for Barlow?"

No, they were just an excuse to hang out with the Sultan and convince him not to be a Clanker.

"Is Tally a virgin?"

She traveled with David all the way back to the city. Like, sleeping in a tent and stuff. What do you think?

Also: "I seem to recall her waking up next to Zane once or twice..."

"I think it's unofficially been named Larry."

Larry is also good.

"And I cannot go a meet up without a pie question being answered. SCOOOOOOTT, PLEASE ANSWER MY INSANITY."

Pie is lovely.

"Did you enjoy Vancouver this year?? "

Yes! You guys were great.

"and....what's your favourite 90s sit com? "

Spaced. (UK)

"Scott, who is your favorite character out of all of your books?"

Dess and Deryn

"What dastardly things has your evil twin (Paul) been up to, lately?"

ALL OF THEM.

"Scott-La!! Scott-La, what colors are Deryn's and Alek's clothes?! Because WOW it's amazing how many different descriptions are out there, if ya look hard enough."

The Manual of Aero will fix this. Reveals start in a month or two.

"What about when you’re stuck for ideas or phrasing/wording?"

Sit in chair and think hard. NO DICE WARS.

"How's that guy in your closet you've mentioned the last few meetups?"

He now lives in the space beneath the stairs.

"Do you have a method for choosing which questions you answer?"

I go with whatever creates MAXIMUM FRUSTRATION.

"Do you like Avril Lavigne? (fingers crossed)"

I like a girl in a tie.

"Have you ever eaten pie in the shower or a different odd place?"

The answer is no.

"would you rather see Bovril  in a ninja or samurai costume?"

Samurai, because of the TOP KNOT.

Do you like cyborg pandas?

They seem like a novel and exciting concept.

What do you think of MOUSTACHES???

I OWN ONE.

"What do you think of Tally?  Like, would you do the same things as her in her position?"

She's a bit self-centered. But I am too, at times.

"Will you come to Albany New York next time you go on tour?"

My pubisher never sends me upstate. Do you guys have not an awesome indie bookstore up there?

"What was your inspiration for the characters in leviathan, specifically Volger? I am sort of obsessed with him."

I just wanted Alek to have a mentor, and he became VOLGER in the writing. I think I'm regrettably good at imperious snark.

"Will you ever write a fantasy book?"

Midnighters!

"How old were you when you first started writing?"

13?

"Do you enjoy living in the US more or Australia? OR MAYBE CANADA??"

Oz is more chill.

"Have you ever heard of or played MINECRAFT"

Heard of and interested by, but have not played.

"What do you think of Shay? Do you love or hate her?"

LOVE.

"What would it take for Leviathan to get made into a movie?"

$100 million

I MUST GO SOON.

"Can So Yesterday be made a movie? I know there was a movie deal that was talked about."

That has fallen by the wayside.

"You have successfully made 2 tomboys squeal like little girls with the ending kiss in Goliath"

THAT was my purpose.

"Are you incredibly rich, or just sorta rich? "

Business class.

"DO YOU LIKE STAR TREK? (TV SHOW AND/OR MOVIES) AT ALL?"

Did when I was a littlie.

"Scott, do you find it scary that your forum has a residential beast? Which just so happens to be me, for the record. I IS BEAST-LA."

I was not informed of this.

"Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many?"

Two older sisters.

"you have to pick 1 of your book characters to come into real life, who is it"

Hmm. Deryn?

"How did the count adapt to being a commoner?"

Volger remained a count at the end. They still have them NOW.

"Do you like the fact that the forum is like a big family?"

Yes, I love you ALL.

"How do you deal with people negatively critiquing your writing? And I mean, REALLY negatively..."

I have a guy who kills them. It's expensive, but worth every penny.

"How often do you check twitter and reply to your fans? "


Twitter is my main interaction point. Because of the shortness.

"Can I give you a virtual hug? And then slap you for the zoomed outed-ness of the book pic? And then highfive you for the "Extra kiss pic" with Alek in a dress ?
"
YES.

ONLY ONE MORE SET OF QUESTIONS AND THEN I MUST GO.

Is it Tsingtao or is it supposed to be Qing Dao?

I think in IB they told us there are two ways for Americans to translate Chinese - like Kuomintang vs Gua Min Dang or Mao Zedong or Tse Tsung. Maybe it's that.

Have you ever met Eoin Colfer?

Yeah. He's hilarious.

"My Mum wants to know why you're called Scott-La. What's it mean, in the...world it originates from?"

It's based on japanese honorifics. Search my blog for "honorifics" and you'll find them post.

"Are you a Nerdfighter?"

Nope.

"Did Alek and his dad have a close relationship?"

Probably not by our standards. People were pretty distant from the parents back then. But they loved each other.

"Do you think there's anything going on between Bovril and Dr. Barlow's loris (aka Ned)?"

WARM PERSONAL FRIENDSHIP.

"Any random facts you wanna share with us?"

I bought a suit yesterday. It is nice.

"If Alek had somehow taken the throne, and was somehow allowed to marry Deryn, would Deryn be happy enough to sacrifice her normalness, or would she turn him down"

Turn him down!

VIRTUAL HUGS TO ALL. I MUST GO BUY FOOD NOW.

Stay as sweet as you are.

Hmm... you people are trying to learn Mandarin?  ??? I'm forced to learn it as i'm in Asia, and i don't see why anyone would ever want to learn it... Unless, you are planning on going to China to work. Seriously, the characters are barking hard to remember and i've been learning it even since i was born.
