I am Cam’s battered sense of duty.
I’m overdue to post the next article here due to illness. The last two weeks I’ve been sicker than I’ve been in ten years, and while housebound I’ve been racing to meet deadline on a forthcoming book for middle-readers. While I’m here though I’d like to direct you to people who are making some pretty cool stuff:
- Patrick O’Duffy’s article “Who Gives a F**k About An Oxford Comma?” is both enlightening and very funny. And it’s got some good comments.
- Jay Kristoff wrote a short article expressing loathing for a thing which I also find repugnant and offensive: the sonic screwdriver. He articulates it pretty well. I merely RANT ABOUT IT in the comments.
- Kirstyn McDermott draws attention to the mystery of sculptures made from books appearing in Edinburgh. No-one seems to know who made them, or from whence they came.
- Novelist Jason Nahrung posts a counterpoint(?), companion(?), to my article on screenwriting, and discusses the debated value of Robert McKee, and what he got out of the seminar he attended.
Here’s the best thing the Internet has ever produced.
And while we’re at it, this is magnificent. Beautifully, beautifully cut together and just so smile-worthy:
