I now want a phone app that sends this picture to anyone that spams me. There could even be a button to send it via text to annoying cold callers.

When some people hear voices in their heads, it's time for a trip to the psychiatrist. When writers hear voices in their heads, it's just a normal day.

It's always interesting to read about other writers' processes because everyone has a different way of composing a story. Me, I go for the start-with-a-cool-idea-and-just-keep-writing approach. It's occasionally frustrating when I write myself into a dead end or get 20000 words into a story and realise it's going nowhere. However, when it works, it's awesome. I get a people going, "Wow! I never would have seen that coming." Of course not, because I didn't see it coming. It seems that your approach is likely to lead to less false starts than mine. When it comes to inspiring writing, I find nothing stirs up my desire to write something than the knowledge that there's a first draft of something else sitting on my computer needing editing.

I've an item to add to the agenda: making the world a better place with better punctuation. I'd like to live in a world where the majority of people on the internet understand that the semicolon has a purpose beyond winking.

That sucks. I think you definitely lived up to your motto despite strong provocation. It definitely is about the moment, not the physical object... at least for the moderately non-crazy people. Having read this, I'm now even more grateful for how friendly Walter Koenig was when I accidentally accosted him with marketing at London Film and Comic Con. My defence is that I'd been offering fliers to everyone who glanced in my direction all weekend and he was wearing a cap so I didn't recognise him at once. He was really nice. He stopped and chatted to me about my book when he was probably exhausted from a weekend of dealing with crazed fans. When he headed off, I was squeeing like crazy about having talked with him. The moment was awesome - the fact that I didn't get an autograph doesn't matter. But I did feel incredibly guilty about stopping him when he was leaving the convention. I don't think I'd be able to walk up to a celebrity in the street.

That's an awesome video. The problem with following the link a few days late though was the entry was right down at the bottom of the page. Maybe it would be better if you linked directly to the post instead of the whole blog? Doing weird and ridiculous things is always worth it for making other people smile. Probably the weirdest thing I've done was help a pirate win an election.

This is a great philosophy for life. You can choose to be happy with what you've got and make other people happy, or you can choose to sulk when other people have more and try to make people miserable. I choose the former. I love tonycaselli's story of the wolves. Feed the nice wolf!
