34 weeks is a lot of weeks

So I've been off in writing-Miss-Peregrine-Book-Two land and haven't been posting much on the ol' bloggy-blog, but that's going to change, I sort-of promise! I felt like I had to pop my head out of my cave to at least acknowledge the ongoing unlikeliness and insanity of Miss Peregrine still, eight months and counting after its publication, occupying a rather prominant spot on the bestseller list. Which is in itself nothing short of amazing. But still more amazing is that I managed to hang on long enough to be list-neighbors with my dear old friend John Green, whose astoundingly good novel The Fault in Our Stars has held the #1 spot the last few weeks (which it richly deserves). It is, as John himself pointed out, a weird and magical thing. (It would be slightly more magical, I suppose, if Rick Riordan and I could switch places for a week, but still.)

A lot of other amazing things have happened in the last 34 weeks, as well, not least of which is that the Miss Peregrine movie went from being a twinkle in Fox's eye to being a project with Tim Burton attached as director and Jane Goldman, who wrote X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass and The Woman in Black, adapting the screenplay. (And by the way, a lot of people ask me if I am bothered by other people writing/directing the adaptation of my book, since I make movies and write scripts too. When it's Tim Burton and Jane Goldman who are doing the writing and directing, the answer is easy: Not. In. The. Slightest.)

Also, does this Woman in Black poster remind you of anything? Ahem! Just sayin'.

    I have learned result-oriented things as a result of your blog. One other thing I'd really like to say is newer computer system os's are inclined to allow much more memory to be used, but they furthermore demand more storage simply to function. If your computer cannot handle much more memory ...

    In addition, some metal books were made, that required smaller pages of metal, instead of an impossibly long, unbending scroll of metal. A book can also be easily stored in more compact places, or side by side in a tight library or shelf space.
