Fun Friday Finds (Or Who Says Friday the 13th Ain’t Lucky?)

Today was very lucky for the person who won Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Messages from Heaven. I threw all those names into and randomized away until this name popped up: STACY!

I sure hope you enjoy the book, Stacy. And for the rest of you non-winners, I have something that will make you feel so much better, you’ll laugh right out loud. (Stacy, you can read it, too.)  It’s Colin Nissan’s “The Ultimate Guide to Writing Better Than You Normally Do.”

I came across Colin’s article over at McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and seriously, I could spend the entire day there, reading stuff and laughing out loud. But then I’d be breaking one of Colin’s rules and never get to writing better than I normally do.

I may not get to that point, anyway. But at least now I feel pretty good about blaming McSweeney’s.

  1. My favorite line is the last, “So treat your demons with the respect they deserve, and with enough prescriptions to keep you wearing pants.” Hmmmm….I did intend to put on pants today, but here it is 2pm and no pants in sight. On the plus side, Zoey the cat is rocking her Post-it note hula skirt.

    • Ha! Don’t you wish you had a nickel for every time you forgot to put on pants, Trisha?

      I’d be a very rich writer. 😉
