Friday again! Now that I seem to have my web site and my email under my control — for the moment — I can get back to trolling the internet — er, “trolling” in the sense of “fishing,” not in the sense of “hitting people with emotional clubs,” of course. Hitting people with emotional clubs is Not Nice, and MomGoth doesn’t do it. Not on purpose, at least.
ANYWAY, here are some cool sites I landed on as I made my fritillarious way around the interwebs.
Ever wonder if a particular web site is safe to visit? Well, visit ScamVoid first, and find out. I’m exceedingly pleased to find that this site gets good marks. 🙂
See that nifty Pinterest board in my sidebar? The one with the My Books board on it? I got it at the Pinterest Developers Widget Builders page. If you have a Pinterest account (and at least one pinboard), and a website, you can embed your pinboard (or more than one) on a page or in a sidebar. Coo’!
I may have shared this before, but it bears repeating. My friend and fellow writer/blogger A. C. Flory (Meeka), who is always dragging me into some obsession or another (online jigsaw puzzles, anyone?) posted one of these Primitive Technology videos, and there went my morning. heh. Meeka is almost as bad as Holly Jahangiri (the real one) for dragging me into things. It’s great!
Do yourself a favor and go read Joey’s One-Liner Wednesday post for this week. You’re welcome.
Sarah Zama (JazzFeathers) is participating in the April A-to-Z Challenge this year (I’m not), and has revealed her theme to be 1920s Jazz as a Social Phenomenon. You can bet I’ll be following her posts!
Oh, oh, oh, I have a new Thing. You know how I am about Tiny Houses and Fancy Shoes. Well, I found this site called The Village Hat Shop, and now I’m all about hat porn. My grandmother always looked so perky yet ladylike in a hat, but I always look like … like a pig in a hat, pretty much. Alas. But I can look at them.
I usually write these the night before I post them and schedule them to go up at 7 in the AM, but I’m going to gradually bump them down to around 9. That’s because I have more fun doing Story A Day May if I get up early and write my story the same day I post it, so that’s what I’m aiming for this year. I’m taking suggestions for story sparks. I’ll put them in a container and draw one out every morning. If I don’t get any, or don’t get enough, I’ll reach into my Bits Binder for inspiration. I also have a Bits o’ Paper box I haven’t cleaned out in about twenty years; that could do with excavating.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character falls in love with a piece of clothing they would or could never wear.
