Bright Red Clouds


I was going to write a piece on what you need on your Web site if you're a writer, but ironically it just doesn't seem to be coming at the moment, and I have other things to do. So: Here, have a sunset. Not as spectacular as some I've posted before, but I like how the sun is setting those low clouds on fire.

Also, damn, Thanksgiving is barreling up on me. I'm so not ready for it, even though "being ready" largely equates to "opening my gullet and letting my mother-in-law slide food down it." It still takes preparation, you know?

I'm gonna try and go for a big bike ride early Thanksgiving morning. Either it'll help jump start my metabolism, or the smells of everyone's cooking food will kill me.

Nice sunset. Have a good Thanksgiving - enjoy that food!

And here I was was sitting in my chair, at the assigned time, with pen and paper waiting to take notes and the prof is out looking at the sunset.

I'm doing yoga for Tday. Surprise. Mrs. Chang is out with some surgery recovery for a few days so Chang is all about teaching 18 classes from now until Monday.

I take it you need writing on your website if you are a writer?

John Scalzi | November 22, 2006 06:14 PM

Oh, sure, if you want to do the conventional thing...

I tried putting elephants in tutus on my website, but that didn't work. They crushed the screen.

Wait, I've got it. What every Writer's Blog needs: Add four multiple scroll-length screeds about "not having enough time to write," each having eight typos, two run-ons, and ten frags, and a few wondering apostrophe errors, all concluding with the statement, "gotta run, my favorite show is on TV and I'm missing it." Stir-fry twelve links to writers and writer help pages including one to Writers Beware and PublishAmerica (yippie, I sold my novel!). Boil one mid length rant about how the "industry" is out to get them. Toss to combine, add four months of no posts, then a link to "Buy My New Book from PA, complain to Borders that they don't carry it," and then ten months of silence until the blog is declared officially dead.

That should be "wandering apostrophe." Yikes, I qualify.

Steve Buchheit | November 24, 2006 05:49 PM

"And what to my wondering aprostrophe's appear
A miniature slay and eight of Tiny's reindeer."

These typos brought to you by freezing fingers after rewiring Xmas Decorations outside.
