Vid, discounts, art, made-up stories, and —

so on. Wait: aren’t all stories made up? No! Because, wait for it, some of them are True. Riiiight, on with the show.

We added a short intro video (see below) to the Writer’s Daily Planner since it is so late to hits stores — managed to post it on Facebook and IndieBound, not sure if it will end up on Powell’s. Used the Flip camera, then upped the sound. Need a better mic!

And: we’ve added discounts! (Not sure if we will get organized enough to do a sale before the year ends. Hmm.)

Alan DeNiro chats up LibraryThing. And, he has a new story on Strange Horizons.

Adam Roberts’s idiosyncratic take on Cloud & Ashes—he likes the story, not the dialog. (Do read his Kevin Anderson review as well, it’s v. v. funny.)

And: Greer gets some fan art.

Nice review of Hound @ Fictionophile: “If bibliophilia is an illness, then Henry Sullivan is terminal!”

Ed Park pulls a thread and finds a story in American Fantastic Tales.

And, you know, other stuff.

Many ‘ands make light work?

    I got the calendar today. It’s lovely. Kelly’s essay was fantastic. Next year’s calendar should come with tiny stickers, so that they can be placed on the calendar every day you manage to get some writing done.

    Other thoughts: Kate Wilhelm’s essay made me want to write a story in each of the styles she doesn’t like. Also: remember: Stephenie Meyer’s name is spelled as though she had interesting parents. It may help to imagine that there’s a little heart above the i.

    Daniel: oops on Stephenie, darn it! Good eyes! And Kate Wilhelm’s essay is a challenge, but be careful. I see writing advice as all rubbish unless you’re in the mood to hear it, then it’s excellent.

    Also: Stickers, great idea!
