  • @PVBrett - Why the hell isn’t there an emoji for shrugging? Who makes these decisions, anyway? They’ve got a lot of explaining to do.
  • @PVBrett - Injustice online players quail before Arlen Bales, Demon of Battle:http://t.co/anJ1WBXqte

Injustice Arlen

  • @PVBrett - Heading to the World Fantasy Con in DC(ish) this afternoon. Guess I should pack. I’ll be writing #SkullThrone on the train. Bad timing, WFC!
  • @PVBrett - Thanks to everyone who came to my reading at World Fantasy! Hiding in my room to work a on #SkullThrone a bit before evening festivities.
  • @PVBrett - Went to the hotel gym with @wes_chu. What has my life become?
  • @PVBrett - Someone mistook @MykeCole for a waiter. He was not amused.http://t.co/5Rc5PLBH70

WFC subpress award

  • @PVBrett - Cassie & I enjoying Lego Batman: DC Superheroes iPad game. Plenty of female heroes to play… if you pay extra in-app for the privilege.
  • @PVBrett - When games make you pay extra in-app or otherwise jump through hoops to unlock female PC’s, it’s like charging tax on being a girl.
  • @PVBrett - Working on a death scene for ?#?SkullThrone? & actually made myself tear up. Alas, poor [redacted]. You will be missed.
  • @PVBrett - .@DiceBagGames It’s my job to make characters you love and then hurt them.
  • @PVBrett - Creator, I am an idiot. I know how to fix this chapter. It was staring me right in the fucking face. ?#?SkullThrone?
  • @PVBrett - With the death of [redacted], creative work on ?#?SkullThrone? is now complete. Need the weekend to accept changes & manuscript goes in Monday.
  • @PVBrett - Cass & a girlfriend at school like Star Wars. Sad reminder there are never 2 women in Star Wars unless one is saying “Many Bothans died…”
  • @PVBrett - People always ask to beta read so they can read a book sooner, but betas get a version that is significantly weaker than the final draft.
  • @PVBrett - Ding! Dong! The draft is done!
    Which old draft?
    The ?#?SkullThrone? draft!
    Ding! Dong! The Skull Throne draft is done!
  • @PVBrett - That feeling when you wake up in the morning and your book is done and off to the publisher.

Mini-Contest: Action Figure Dance Party

Posted by Meg

Peat ran a little mini-contest over on Twitter the other night. While working on The Skull Throne, Peat decided to use his action figure collection to help choreograph a fight scene. Turns out, all they really want to do was dance.

@PVBrett – I use action figures to help mentally choreograph fight scenes. Sometimes, they have a dance party.

Dance Party 1

@PVBrett - If you have action figures on your desk, I want to see some dance parties, people. There will be prizes.

Dance Party 2

@PVBrett – Last one, including Renna’s stunt-double. Now back to work.

Dance Party 3

@PVBrett - OK I lied. I needed to do one more with Jardir pole-dancing his spear.

Dance Party 4

In response, we got some quality entries along with some amusing tweets:

@scottlynch78 – Spider-Man, Spider-Man / Plotting scenes for the Warded Man / Hey you can’t rhyme / Man with Man / Nyah nyah nyah / Yes we can!

@extremebarg – The Lich King is tragically incapable of dance partying.

Lich King Ben

@Mikemclendon - you realize you’ve just written the best incentive for burgeoning writers without discipline… Writing requires toys!

@Tenjina - Dance Party!

Dance Party Jess

@mrgregariously - and grifter is the lonely drifter.

action figures thepresent

@mrgregariously - this one is way better.

Action Figure thepresent 2

@phobophille - Spidey & Stromtrooper potato enjoying Cherno Alpha’s breakdance skills. Dalek is unimpressed, keeps dancin’
