So, of course, the first thing I did when we got that satellite dish tacked up on our chimney (the old one, not the one that was smoking), was to gorge myself on interwebs. I have not slept in many moons, but I have re-discovered the life-sucking entity known as YouTube.
And I found some cool stuff for the linkspam!
First: What? NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also: What? WTF? (but I must admit, if I ever became so successful that I had a perfume made out of one of my books, I would wear it daily, even if it did smell of freesia)
I am trying to find a text copy for this, but until then, you can dl it here: Neil Gaimon's "A Writer's Prayer" I like what he says about its creation:
A Writer's Prayer was written shortly before I began American Gods. I knew the first two verses when I began it, and the conclusion was there when I reached it. This is why I love writing.Why, yes. I am behind my peers technologically. I have finally joined Facebook. I hesitated because MySpace made me feel like a pedophile--not that I am one, it's just so...uh...obviously aimed at angsty teenagers and inundated with teen porn--but Facebook is nice and not creepy.
Anyways, be my friend!
