i’m not feeling very wordy today, so instead of bugging you with unimportant jibber jabber of my own, here are some others’ words, images, idea that entertain me…
patrick ness talking about the CHAOS WALKING series.
a holiday creature was stirring by bats langley.
top 10 DAMN YOU AUTO CORRECTs from november.
great article on nailing the teen voice by lydia sharp.
a serious article by carrie harris on the lure of the paranormal. and yes, her serious is as profound as her funny.
a funny tweet by @FakeEditor: “Dear Author: Best of luck in your “writing career.” Yes, I’d love fries with that.”
a seasonal picture from things organized neatly. gorgeous!
a post on how and why her life is changing by kristen munson. GAH. i want to write like this. or, well, have something like this to write about!
a picture i hope i emulate someday from ally condie’s blog.
an interesting viewpoint from kiersten white on why authors shouldn’t read reviews of their work. the irony is, of course, that in order to write the post kiersten had to read reviews!
another beautiful seasonal photograph from ann finkelstein. it looks like something charlotte would have left over wilbur’s pen.
an important writing point wrapped up in a heart meltingly cute picture from (again) kiersten white.
the most hilarious take on what stress and expectations can do to a person from hyperbole and a half.
veronica roth on how sometimes NOT WRITING is a good idea.

the beginning of a cool writing experiment by kelly breakey and karla nellenbach.
instant haiku, just add water by adriana kirilova.
a post from linda grimes that at first glance is all silliness, but is really a love letter in disguise. I WANTS.
hands down the best post i’ve ever read on SHOW DON’T TELL by tawna fenske. a must read even if you’re not a writer.
a coworker: “a book is never complete until it’s read. please read.” (subliminal plug for my current job + my [haven’t yet achieved] dream job.)
see, aren’t their words, ideas, images brilliant?
