Happy Friday!

I so want this software! Can you imagine planning out novel crime scenes in full detail? Probably too distracting. I'd never get the writing done as I planned and replanned the events. Wouldn't it be fun though?

Then, let's get distracted with a cute puppy! So adorable! Want! No, must be sensible. No more puppies. Instead, we'll get distracted with James Marsters.

I may actually have to watch ... that channel. I can't even type it. You know the one. The one that used to be Scifi, but changed it because people couldn't figure out why wrestling was included in that description. Now it's a description-free moniker that annoys everyone I know and seems to be pronounced Siffee no matter what the marketing executives think.

Alright, moving on, I found another author blog that shows how to be graceful about not winning the top place. She appreciates winning and applauds the book that beat hers instead of acting entitled or whining that she pioneered the genre. It hasn't been until recently that I've really began to appreciate how important that is. (Kim Harrison's book just came out in softcover, so I have only recently acquired it -- I'm sure I've mentioned my preference for hand-sized books before. There is a reason all the e-readers aren't shaped like hardcovers - remember that, book marketers. I haven't read it yet because I'm struggling to make peace between my hobbies as I make real effort to put writing first.)

Unfortunately that makes my link page a little short as well. Instead, be amused at Nathan Fillion on Twitter. I signed up for the fake Christopher Walken, who almost instantly disappeared. I stayed for the Fillion. I love humor in bite-sized 140 character pieces. I wish I could do it.

Have a great weekend!
