To Hell with Susan Sontag

Illness isn't metaphor; it's a literal time suck and annoyance. It's Day 8 of pneumonia, and I'm at that obnoxious stage where I'm well enough to be bored with everything (myself most especially), but not well enough to actually do anything, other than spend an inordinate amount of time online.

Great places to kill time today--and learn something in the process:
  • Guest blogger Ally Carter shares invaluable tips in "An Author Looks at Publicists" at Pub Rants.
  • "Slushkiller" by the incomparable Teresa Nielsen Hayden at Making Light. Marvelous dissection of rejection letters and the sometimes crazy responses from their recipients.
  • "Being Able to Write" by K.G. Schneider at Free Range Librarian. Great tips from writers.

My favorite Cheney shooting joke, from "Jimmy Kimmel Live":

You know what they say, if Dick Cheney comes out of his hole and shoots an old man in the face, 6 more weeks of winter.
Happy Valentine's Day! (GRRR...)
