Don't know if you'll read this far down in the comments, but I've been reading you since I came across a mention of WWdN in Wired, that had to have been, like 2005 or so? Either way I'm 99% sure you're the one blog I've read the longest. I may have started reading because I loved you on Star Trek, but you've kept me here with your amazing writing. You're the same age as my husband so it's interesting to watch you grow together. So what I'm saying is I'll follow you anywhere (but not in a weird stalkery way).

I've been taking walks in the mornings, almost every day if I can. I have my phone mostly 'cause I use a program to track my time and length, but it's in my pocket and not looked at. That's probably the best time of my day, me, nature, my camera and nothing else between.

Your welcome, and thank you (US Navy 1997-199) And I sent my husband back overseas on Sunday. Eight more months in Afghanistan for him.

My hubby and I haven't been able to game in a while. But I'll still come across him rolling up characters sometimes, just for the heck of it. I don't mind a bit.

You rickrolled me. And Coulton rickrolled his audience, as proven in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwqNpa-O63w

Man, when I was 15 or so I hung out a the music store in town (Bluebird Music). I've no idea why Dana, the owner/operator put up with this teenage girl just hanging out for like 2 years, but he did. And he put a lot of good music in my hands in the process. I was so sad when he sold it and the store left town.

Awesome post. Thank you. This going in the ever growing bookmarks of "inspirations" which is mostly populated by you and Neil Gaiman. And this is kinda like what I'm hoping to accomplish by my own blog.

I just love that picture. CSI: Star Trek, not so much. Though can I confess I actually cried when Wesley went off with the Traveler?

I'm adding this to my growing bookmarks about the writing process, right now mostly populated by you and Neil Gaiman. This is also part of why I started my own blog, because I'm hoping that talking about the writing process helps others, just as you talking about it has helped me.

I second the "needs wil" to heroes, especially if they HAVE to add more characters. And more Hiro, but none of the boring stuff. I got bored enough I didn't even bother watching the end of the season. Bastards.

sounds like the other week in the car when the station played Wings followed immediately by AC/DC. Hubby was like "first, yes people have had enough of silly love songs, thats why there hasn't been a Wings reunion. Second, following that with AC/DC? that sound you hear is gears grinding...or the gnashing of teeth."

I'd highly recommend Zen in the Art of Writing, by Ray Bradbury. Seriously helped me get my head back in the right space. And Wil, you are awesome and the fear is so normal. Glad to see your still grabbing for your dreams.

Someone beat me to "Canticle for Leibowitz" by Walter M. Miller. Otherwise I'd go for "Time Enough for Love" in the Heinlien catagory. One that hasn't been mentioned is "The Nine Billion Names of God". It's a short story collection by Arthur C. Clarke. Newish SciFi I'm going to go for a different Orson Scott Card book. "Songmaster".

I've watched just enough poker to sort of be able to follow the poker parts. Otherwise it was riveting. Keep it up, I want to read more
