All wired after a night a literary snarkery, reliving one of my favorite nights at Clarion. Real content and writing challenges coming soon, but for now, Tab Close!
I don’t think i quite have the hang of how Neil does this. But here’s what’s currently open in my browser:
Been meaning to read Benjamin Rosenbaum’s “Biographical Notes to
‘A Discourse on the Nature of Causality, with Air-planes‘” for forever. I love his stuff. Soon, soon…
Also, possibly the single best short story title ever: Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs By Leonard Richardson
Want to read this Washington Post article on the posible upswing of the economy.
I’m slightly embarrassed that i started researching the rational behind the creation of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Moving on…
An acquaintance wants me to write a story about Sephardi Jews. She says Benjamin Rosenbaum will give me a cookie if i do.
The second i started actually doing research for a story, i became instantly addicted to Google Timeline.
Speaking of research, i want to write a story for John Joseph Adam’s The Way of the Wizard Anthology set during the Portuguese Inquisition. I think this map will be useful.
I found this article about The Nemesis for said story. I mix all this together and i get … who knows?
Really digging on Lilith Saintcrow’s Writers And Social Media: The Shoulds and Should NOTs.
Ahhhhh … that makes my browser much more slim and easy. 🙂
What kind of cookie would you like? Peanut butter? Oatmeal? Chocolate chip?
Ohhh, ohhhh. Oatmeal! Thanks. *gets back to work*
Someday, perhaps years from now, I will suddenly be inspired and write a story about a Jew, and then I will come find you and demand my half a cookie.
Actually, now I'm curious about the math here–if I write a story about a half-Jew, do I get a quarter of a cookie? Or no cookie, as half of my family is Jewish? Does it depend on what faith the main character was brought up in? Ooh, if it's a Jew half of whose family is Christian what fraction of a cookie would that get me? 😉
