Today is actually Saturday, I know it. It’s a Saturday wearing Friday’s pantsuit and I’m not too happy about it. D’:
- So, you ready to quit your day job, throw all your centavos in and make writing your full time gig? Writer’s Digest has a handy little checklist before you go making any rash decisions. For me, #3: yea auld sword of Damocles is the killer… having a sensible financial plan. Because savings? ::Turns pockets inside out to allow the moths out::
- Worlds Without End put together an astounding list of the best scifi novels of all time, using 28 different best-of and recommended lists. It’s a really interesting look at the history of the genre, and I do mean history, as it’s a little surprising that there was nothing newer than 1990 on it.
- Reading reviews of your own book. For me, on that day when I finally release my book into the wild, I think I’ll take this advice and avoid them. How do you deal with reviews?
You know what would have been awesome instead of going to work today? Waking up surrounded by piles of burritos and books.— Nathan Hall (@nmhall) May 17, 2013
