Don't forget about our giveaway of Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series 1-3, all SIGNED by the author. We met Julie last summer and she is stupendously cool to chat with. Okay she's got a new book out--The Immortal Rules--which is getting lots of buzz. But this is your chance to get the books that started it all. All you have to do is comment on this post. Winners announced next week!

On twitter last week, writers were getting crazy in the shower:

Perhaps these bits of brilliance occurred whilst showering:

Ryan Gosling saving lives? Need to take a cold shower...

More funny:

Twitter nonsense:

Experienced both, and we'd take the Lego. :)

That technique of transcribing masterful passages is something that used to be considered part of normal training as a writer. I think... I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere, anyway! :P

ROFL to Dan Wells' tweets! Now I want to read that book.

And YES, DITTO to Chuck Wendig's tweet. Sigh...

Oh, the Lego jokes gets me every time. Hate those buggers!

@Kristan...I used to transcribe. You? Truthfully, though, the last thing I remember transcribing was a book of poems by Jewel (the singer) because it was a library book and I didn't want to buy one and I was desperate to have lines like "I walk my fingers along the hemline of a field" GOLD

@Alissa...seriously. Makes me chuckle every time until I step on a friggin LEGO!!!

Kristan said...

Yep, I definitely did! For me, too, it was partly b/c I just wanted to keep those passages for myself. I still type them out sometimes (esp. for books I've borrowed from friends or the library) and then email them to myself.
