I’m looking for a few good ninjas…

May 16, 2012

I went to a casual write-in at the home of a good friend last night, and for the fun of it I wore one of my favorite novelty T-shirts, the ‘Sneaky like ninja’ from Sick on Sin. Fantasy Writer Guy spotted the design as I came into the room, and we had an interchange that to me, perfectly sums up the fun of that design:

FWG: Are those cupcakes?
Me: Yes – except for the one that’s a ninja.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a full series of Spotlight interviews – not counting the few that I included in the A-Z challenge when I had absolutely nothing else to use on a tough letter of the alphabet, and the ‘Spotlight on Chris’ that I half-completed in late March. So, it’s time again.

From now through July 10th, I want to spotlight writing ninjas, from the Writer’s Dojo. The Dojo does run it’s own ‘Novel Ninja’ feature, but hopefully my spotlights will have more unexpected questions than those articles. 🙂

So – if you’re a Dojo ninja and want to step into my spotlight, just leave a comment to this post or contact me via email at chrisken zero at gmail dot com . I’ll be trying to visit a lot of fellow ninjas and dropping links to invite them to participate over the coming weeks.

Here’s what to expect for the spotlight – I’ll send you some offbeat questions to answer, and maybe one ordinary one that I’ll ask every ninja. You’ll also be able to tell us all about your blog or your latest book, and share a pretty picture if you like.

I’m looking forward to seeing a lot more ninjas around here. Or maybe not seeing them, if their ninja mojo is strong enough…

Just sharing a few of the photos that I’ve managed to take since I’ve been here:
