Three cool things

I found a bunch of neat stuff online over the weekend. It's amazing what's out there once you start clicking around and reading tons of blogs!

First, THIS. Alan Rickman penned a thank you homage to J.K. Rowling and it appeared in Empire magazine. I've read and re-read it dozens of times and it still gives me goosebumps.


Second, (and really, how do you follow Colonel Brandon Alan Rickman?) I have seen this person's blog handle pop up enough times to recognize it. Being the curious cat that I am, I found SA Larsen's blog and was pretty dang impressed with her blog, Writer's Ally.

This lead me to think about the blogs I follow that are more than one person's take on a topic. Instead, these sites are almost like a clearing house for all sorts of information or tips you should know about writing.

And finally, as a child of the late 80s/early 90s, when all my friends were listening to NKOTB and MC Hammer, I was rocking out to Motley Crue, Poison, and of course, Guns N' Roses. I am not afraid to admit that I had a poster of a shirtless Slash on my bedroom wall, complete with black top hat, black leather pants, and a python. Imagine my delight when I heard this... (It's okay to admit you were shaking your head to the beat. I understand.)


  1. You know, I don't think I've ever seen Slash's face, lol.

    I'm going to have to go and check out those other links later. I want to read that letter from Rickman. Whew, crazy Wednesday today.

  2. OH I love Slash! Especially his hat!

  3. LG, it's not so much the face as the black leather pants. :) I wish my image would show up. Right now it's just a little square. Sad panda. I hope this isn't yet another Blogger problem. :(

    Talei, I know, right! My mom wondered if it was wise to have a band poster in a 12 yr old's room showing the members with booze bottles and cigarettes...


I love getting comments. They're as much fun as getting real snail mail. So please, chime in and tell me what you think!
