While I’m still meandering around, working normal hours and odd hours, trying to figure out exactly what I can do to make the whole ’student loan debt’ thing go away faster and taking the occasional bubble bath, I am still reading. And watching things as well.
I thought this video from Meg Cabot about her ‘typical day’ was quite amusing and a good way to start the week off.
*I am very amused by this idea. “Other People’s Rejection Letters will feature reproductions of all kinds of rejection letters. Whether typed form letters or handwritten in a fit of rage, whether sent by text message, email, or scrawled in crayon, any kind of rejection is fair game: You didn’t get the job or the loan or the membership; you’re not the right fit for our dentistry school; you’re my son but I never want to see you again; your restaurant failed its health inspection; your parole has been denied; we had a good time together but you cheated on me so this is goodbye.”
*Write or Die from Dr. Wicked would have been an excellent tool for NaNoWriMo. You can even set it to start deleting your words if you pause too long. Wicked and funny - I like it.
*Libba Bray tells an amusing story about how writing a novel is very much like falling in love…
And there you have it for today. I hope you enjoy reading those pieces as much as I did.
