And Some Stuff to Check Out

  • The Atlantic asks if literary journals should charge writers a reading fee. I have the answer: No. Absolutely not. Read the article for the plethora of reasons.
  • Vegas as a literary destination? No, this article wasn’t published by The Onion.
  • A wonderful blogger I follow, Cindy Fazzi, wrote an ode to adverbs. I tend to hate those sneaky bastards, but you listed some killer quotes, Cindy.
  • The Reader’s Room, another awesome blog I follow, launched a monthly feature that I’m extremely upset I didn’t invent: Terrible Reviews of Great Books. You’re a genius, Jen.
  • It’s almost Halloween, and I love a good horror story. If we could be wondertwins and you can’t get enough grim gore, take Buzzfeed’s quiz and try to name the horror novel by reading one iconic line.
  • Speaking of All Hallows’ Eve, two bloggers I love – Poet Rummager and -FlyTrapMan- – are hosting Monster Masquerade, a way for monster-lovers to share their ghoulish creations. Monster Masquerade ceases to be on Halloween, so hurry and participate.
  • In case you didn’t know this about me, I love tattoos. Need proof?

And you all know I love books. So of course I drooled while checking out Buzzfeed’s recent post listing thirty literary tattoos.

How’s your week going? Reading anything fascinating or – even better – writing something incredible?

Shiiiiiiit. I forgot. (You’ll learn this about me–I have so much crap going on in my brain that I forget stuff all the time.) I believe I’m making a trip to the bookstore today, so I’m putting it on my shopping list!!

It’s okay! I forget all the time, too! I was going to write an extremely clever comment, but guess what? I forgot! \”/

Have fun at the bookstore! Never neglect the occult section.

They didn’t have it. LAME! Going to order it online.

Some chapters are saturated with mathematical equations, so you may not enjoy certain parts of the book. The overall message is interesting, though.

I think Einstein might have been being a tad modest. Now I really have no special talents.
