  • Exercise for the day: shoveling a metric assload of snow. First time the shovel’s been out this year for anything but threatening neighbors. #
  • Today, my hate-sporks are directed at the asshole across the street who never shares his snowblower. *sporkporkSPORK* #
  • RT @thecreativepenn #ideasfestival #ideabook “Look to gaming to see a space where people are not constrained by the old forms.” Word. #
  • RT @kate_eltham “The role of editor and publisher is to build and enrich the community that exists around the author, and that’s a huge job” #

  • Must remember this quote from @UnclePilot: “I’m having a “Format C: ” kind of day.” #
  • Discard 99 of every 100 adverbs. This includes “with a” phrases, like “said, with a smile.” Ugh. #writeradv #
  • RT @trinamlee Write what you love, not just for the market. It is much more rewarding to love your creations than to just hope for a payout. #
  • You know what? Here’s some #writeradv : Read. Read read read read read. #
  • Am out of soda. And dog food. Might need to leave the house. /cower #
