    does your signifcant other ever ask you to try and change your sleeping pattern? i imagine it must be hell sleeping in the same bed as you..

    FOR FUCK'S SAKE

    Um... it does occasionally tell me to "come to bed earlier," but it doesn't get to shop unless it leaves me alone to work, and if it misbehaves it gets the hose again

    Hey, Warren, with how crazy your schedule has been (and will be, having just read your blog post re: February), what do you do to relax?

    I have heard of this word, but I do not know what it means

    -If your daughter expressed an interest in working in comics, would you encourage her or try and dissuade her from doing so?

    I only dissuade my daughter from things I know to be directly injurious to her health. If she wanted to be a comics writer, and was serious in her desire, then obviously I would encourage her, as I do in all other things.

    Leah Moore is a perfect model. Doesn't matter who her dad is. SHE DOES THE WORK. And only shitbags can argue with that.

    @oldhat:

    1. I've often found it amazing how you're able to write so many things in a day and can still come online and torment/love us. Do you have a schedule for that kind of thing, and if so can you run some of it by us? Just wondering how you do your amazing time management.

    It's all on instinct, but mostly the other stuff is done during natural pauses in the work, where I can't quite see how to get to the next bit yet, but don't want to leave the keyboard and let my fingers get cold. So I flick up Whitechapel, Feed Demon or the Post2Blog window, just to keep typing, until the story unsticks itself and I can bring the manuscript back up...

    2. Got any BBC, YTV, Channel4 or ITV shows/movies from any year you'd recommend?

    ...from ANY year? That's kind of a spread...

    3. If you ever come to Toronto, can I buy you a drink, squire?

    It's probably going to be a flying visit, and of course completely managed by the studio, but if it looks like I'll have the time, I'll let you know.

    Thanks for doing another one of these, Warren. My question is this: if you could witness one historical event first hand, what would it be, and why?

    I know you've written about your experiences and general thoughts on comicons in the past, but I thought I'd ask anyway. When, if ever, do you plan on coming back to North America for a comicon/convention/gathering of some kind? Or do you just not think about those things?

    I have no plans. I don't think about them. Unlike some, I really don't plan my year around conventions. Hell, that's why I started doing promotional/conversational stuff on the internet in the first place...!

    considering the way you talk about american (and uk for that matter) cons why do them at all? or is it a contractual thing?

    Do you operate both while working and in daily life on an underlying tension, or are you by and large comfortable? Which do you think is preferable?

    Re your recent postings on Alexandria's Genesis, have you had to deal with people who assume you believe something you feel is factual BS, but found interesting to play with in a story?

    From time to time, yes. Also, some people confuse my posting something on warrenellis.com under the tag "research material" with my broadcasting unbiased news to the people. It's all just storystuff.

    Best interview someone made you.
    Best interview ever.
    And thanks for your time, I'm loving all of these interrogations.

    Warren, I don't believe I've ever seen one of your scripts before - how extensively do you get into things like page layouts and panel composition, as opposed to letting the artists do what they think is best? I always hear writers say that they tailor their work to the artist's strengths, but does that apply here as well or just to story content?

    Hi Warren, thanks for doing this.

    What do you think about the US space shuttle program shutting down in 2010?

    I hope you have been saving up royalties for false documents claiming you are a prestigious museum, and the roughly $29 million you have to pay to have Atlantis boxed up and shipped to you assuming you win.

    Ocean and Orbiter were kind of a big books for me, they made me consider caring about something thats perspective terrifies me nightly. Sorry I missed it if you talked about this before.

    How do you manage the writing/life balance?

    I find it easy to find the time and mental space to write when I'm creating from scratch but much harder to find time for editing and polishing and I was wondering if you had any advice (short of doing a Spider and eschewing sleep through judicious use of chemicals)?

    What's your daily schedule like, if any? Do you have specific hours for work or no?

    If someone handed you a big fat sack of cash and said "Make me something interesting" do you have a dream project you'd jump for the chance to do? And if you do, would it necessarily be comics?
