On a happier note...

Anger apparently helps a LOT with word count.

And I found this (pokes freixenet), one of the coolest blogs I've encountered in a long time:

http://tenser.typepad.com/tenser_said_the_tensor/linguistics_in_sf/index.html

Of special interest to those who enjoy SF and/or linguistics and rhetoric.

Because I have a good memory and yet this has nothing to do with this post, figured I'd share what I saw:

Which makes me long for Peter O'Toole now.

Go figure

Waaah. It's friends only! I'm gonna try to join, because I remember the mental image you're referring to, and it *still* does it for me. White cotton, bare feet, and ::melts::

Re: Oh, see...and you know that's me
It's nice to be back. I have been watching your BGS fic proceed -- I'm not sure I'm ready for fic in that show yet, but when I am, I know right where to go.

Writercon...is not as organized as I'd like it to be. Life has taken a lot of us by the short hairs, and we're scrambling to get everything in place for November. I'm hoping Atlanta comes out on top too, obviously, but some of the other cities have serious potential. It's really going to come down to expense overall.

The line through is 'strike' and '/strike', but replace the ' with < and >.

Hey, cool blog! Thanks for doing the feed--I am going to add this, because that is some excellent material. ::hugs you::

I have always found anger to be a real motivator of prose. Not that it's great prose, but there's always more of it.

Isn't it neat? I've been playing with it off and on since I found him in my quest for the right words to say what I want.

Anger creates some serious energy. I'm not sure it's good stuff, but it's flowing out of my head and into my fingers nicely, and the point of nano is to get it out. Editing/revising is for getting it right :-)
