oldtimefiddler asked: Dear Neil, thought this might be useful in response to khaizarin's question: Mary Roach mentions the University of Tennessee's Forensic Anthropology Center in her book Stiff. Their entire purpose is to study human decomposition. (And yes I'm a librarian and Neil is 100% correct about the weird questions. And the unsettling smiles.)
exw9 asked: Hey Neil. First off you're an incredible writer. Anansi boys and stardust are absolutely amazing stories. I just started good omens and I can't help but think that Kevin smith got some of his inspiration for dogma from this book. Similar undertones of impending apocalyptic doom and dry sarcastic wit. Just a thought I had. What do you think? I have a picture in mind of Kevin reading this and laughing while thinking how he could turn this into a movie. Anyways, thanks for all you do. Keep it up!!!
Look carefully at the Thank Yous at the end of Dogma, next time you watch it.
myinsidesareallwrong asked: I believe you may have answered this question before, but I can't seem to find it in your archive. What would you say to someone who keeps starting stories, but doesn't finish them? They generally start to get frustrated with themselves and beat themselves up, because they don't finish any of the stories.
I’d say, either make yourself finish the stories, or stop writing and do other things for a while.
