Friday: Pinterest and Other Things of Interest

Lotta buzz going around about Pinterest. It’s one of the many social time-wasting It’s one of the many social-networking sites Holly Jahangiri has roped me into. It’s great, and most useful for a writer. If you don’t believe me, read this GalleyCat article on Pinterest Tips for Writers. Then come back and request an invitation. You’re welcome. Just make me proud. If you want to see how I’m wasting time using Pinterest, here is my profile/boards page.

I found the web site of the great and magnificent Roger Dean, album cover designer for Yes, Uriah Heep, Cream and others. He also designed the most … indescribable architecture, that first broke my mental mold about houses having to be boxes with rectangular holes in them. Here is one of his concepts in design in actual fact, linked to from his site.

Roger Dean’s design was in my mind when I imagined the architecture of the “resort planet” in my forthcoming novel, SIDESHOW IN THE CENTER RING, especially the actual tourist resort out away from the city. Wouldn’t you imagine people living here seeing things as more of a continuum than as a confrontational duality? Don’t you think they would have a diet heavy on a wide variety of noodles? Maybe just the occasional bit of bipedal sentient flesh, just on special occasions? Not, you know, EVERY day.

Whether you’re a vegan or not, a good recipe is a good recipe. Chocolate-Covered Katy serves ’em up healthy and delicious. She specializes, as you might surmise from the title, in desserts, but she has non-dessert recipes, too. Oh, um, yum!

WRITING PROMPT: Under what circumstances would you knowingly eat human flesh? Would it make a difference if it were covered in chocolate?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    It would have to have sprinkles, too.
