Ah Wil, this post made me cry. I don't think you're anthropomorphizing at all. Animals know when their humans are grieving...and dogs especially will repress their own grief in order to comfort their humans. I'm so sorry.

P.S. compared to your reading, Alex's reading made me guffaw. No, really. ;o)

The voice of "Alex" reminds me of a robotic voice from some '80s movie. I can *almost* place it.... If I stuck out my tongue, you'd see it printed there.... *sigh* Failing brain power. In other news...Wil, you said "Speak & Spell." I love it. Short Circuit? Marty's jacket from Back to the Future 2? definitely not HAL from "2001"..... This is gonna drive me batty.

"...just give me a chance to disappoint you on my own merits, now, instead of deciding that my current work is not even worth watching...." Wil, for the record, there are a lot of us whom you impressed on your own merits twenty-some years ago in spite of a "sometimes-badly-written-character"....and you continue to impress us today on your own merits. I like the adult Wil. Noli nothis permittere te terere. ;o)

P.S. Three-time NaNo winner and intending to make this year the fourth!

I am doing NaNo, Wil, and just wanted to say thanks for all the tips and resources! It's so awesomely cool that the kid I had a *crush* on (pun very much intended ;o) when he played a dorky little ensign grew up to be a guy I can relate to on multiple geeky levels--including the writerly one. ;o) Your blog is a continual source of amusement, thought-provokingness, and ooh-I-wish-I'd-written-thats! Thanks, and carry on! 8921 words and counting! Woo-hoo!

P.S. Wil, I'll always adore you in any outfit, but especially in a Batman hat.

My chows included: pink stone-washed denim jacket with matching pants; overalls in a pink brick pattern with blue graffiti; and corduroys in w-i-d-e and magenta. Oh, and I sported a boy's haircut with a rat-tail down my back. And I'm a girl. Do I win something? ;o)

Currently reading: Sylvia Plath's "Ariel" and Roald Dahl's "Boy." Plath is morbid and weird, Dahl is morbid and funny. I'm enjoying both. ;o) Recently finished: Scalzi's "Old Man's War." *Loved* it, Wil! Thanks for the recommend!

Hmmm, über-creepy IT reference....but it made me laugh. I'd love to come be über-creepy fangirl at PAX, but alas and alack, no can do. I'm sure you'll have fun anyway. ;o) Also, thanks Wil, for all the writing-related posts of late. I finished the first draft of a fantasy novel two months ago and am now working on my second draft. What you say about the highs and lows of writing is inspiring and encouraging, especially in helping me get past headdesk moments when the plot sickens. So...thanks...and metaphors be with you! (Okay, so I'll admit, that line's not original...but I'm definitely geek enough to use it.)

Wil, I've always loved Star Trek (original and TNG), and I've adored Wesley from Farpoint on. You did a great job, it's as simple as that. When I was a teen, there were so many times I wished I could be you--or be Ashley Judd in a certain episode. ;o) Thanks for sharing your Star Trek memories!

"I believe that we have a responsibility to these people, to help educate and enlighten them, so they understand how to protect themselves online." Yes, Wil! Please to be helping, please! ;o) I do know enough not to fall for scams like that (I do recall Compuserve [vividly], and once upon a time, I even programmed QBasic [poor Sammy dies again], but I'm fairly clueless about the true innards of my computer and of today's Internet. I am one of the poor, the hapless, who will forever require assistance from those with bigger brains. Or at least computer skills that exceed the QBasic. (Though if Q made an appearance in my computer, I wouldn't complain.) ;o)

Hey Wil, For uncooperative brains and general malaiase, take: 1 "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron, and call me in the morning. No, do, really. ;o)

I don't have kids yet, but I'm hoping for them. Wil, you're doing with your kids exactly what I hope to do with mine someday: share books with them, and explore the wonderful multiplicity of worlds contained therein. My parents did that with me...and I'll treasure those grand adventures forever! Thanks so much for sharing your experiences and remember-this moments...it's encouraging to know that there are still parents like you out there.

When I was 24, my husband and I moved to Germany. And in that move, we lost the box with all of my journals in it...ages 14-20. When I had exhausted myself looking for that box and realized that it was probably languishing in a warehouse somewhere in London or Hamburg, unidentified, unclaimed, and unfindable, I cried. Those were my memories, and they were gone, and there was nothing I could do to get them back. Fast forward 6 years. We're packing to move back to the USA. My husband comes down from the attic with a box and says, "Guess what I found?" And there was much rejoicing. And then there was a lot of reading and a lot of nostalgia. And then there was some crying. And then some more rejoicing. And I discovered a girl in those pages who I had forgotten existed. Journals are priceless treasures. Even when they make you sad. Sometimes, especially when they make you sad. :o)

Answering caitlen315: It makes us awesome, of course, of course. What's "old" mean? ;o) And, like Mogsie, I am a bit perplexed and disturbed by the cow orkers. There's something within me that has trouble fucosing on that. Whee!

Hey Wil, Another great resource for writers (and anyone else involved in art/s) is "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. The whole concept is about "getting out of your own way." I'm working through the book right now (yes, it's work, not just a good oh-now-wasn't-that-nice read). So far, it's illuminating, fun, and painful. In a good I-see-now-why-I've-been-blocking-myself way. It's the cathartic ouch that lets the poison out. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on writing--I always enjoy them! Courtney
