Okay, sometimes my sunny demeanor fails me. I'm feeling a bit low today. SO! Here are some quick things to make us all happy!
- Did you all know I won Natalie Whipple's Dark & Stormy Writing Contest? They say to never start a story with the weather. Natalie asked us to do exactly that, and make it gooood. Check out the top entries (there's an honorable mention entry written by a 12-year-old that will surely delight everyone) and have a nice think about what the weather is doing in your own stories.
- Everyone needs to go read David Eagleman's Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives. Immediately. I am not fooling around here. NOW, PEOPLE! It's f---ing amazing.
- Our finches are all taking a bath in their water dish. Looks a lot like this (fun starts about 25 seconds in).
