I’ve got ambitions, people, and I must have your help with them. Don’t worry: this will ultimately benefit you!
I need to write a huge lot of stuff by the end of this month. My current plan is to get almost all of my blog posts written in advance for the summer, leaving me free to concentrate on Mount St. Helens stuff and fiction. And I want to write more about geology. Hence, I’d love for you to ask questions.
I’d especially love if a bunch of those questions had nothing to do with volcanoes. Don’t get me wrong: I loves me some volcanoes, too! But Rosetta Stones is meant to have a broader focus. There’s so much more to earth science than asplodey things.
My editor at SciAm would especially love it if those questions had nothing to do with Washington State, unless it’s to illustrate a broader principle. (For example: in my I-swear-I-will-write-it-this-summer article about large igneous provinces, I’ll be using the Columbia River Basalts as an example, and that is completely legit.)
ADDITIONALLY: If you send me really nice photos you’ve taken of some geology and ask me to write about them, I can totally do that if you’ll sign a form permitting me to use your pics. It’s completely free and easy. I’ll take stuff from anywhere in the world. Yes, even volcanoes, if you must.
Furthermore: If you want me to show you round Mount St. Helens personally, let me know so we can arrange something. If you feed me and pay for gas, I will be totally happy to Vanna White all over the national volcanic monument for your benefit.
