A Pocket Full of Murder

STAR WARS like you've never seen it before! And an incoherent book rec

Oh my word, this is hilarious and exactly what I needed after reading Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson which I now see a lot of people on GoodReads did not get at all and think is one of her lesser works, but I so disagree or I will if I can only stop sobbing long enough to draw breath, uh, where was I?

Oh, yeah:

REC: Writing in the Age of Distraction

Having spent the last couple of days feeling horribly guilty for not writing 1000 words a day on my latest WiP and even more guilty for spending time reading books, doing housework and hanging around on the Internet instead, I think Cory Doctorow's latest column for Locus may just have saved my sanity.

It's amazing to me how I can keep learning the same hard lessons, and keep forgetting them and having to relearn them, on a regular basis...
