I try to have new posts daily, but it's more a part of a personal exercise in discipline. However, on the rare occasion I post something other people may be interested in, I like to let people know. I wrote up my Harry Potter 7.5 review last night:

Please feel free to comment or what have you, I love interaction! :)
I finally have a website/blog! Check it out, I need the attention!

Follow me on Twitter! I will return the favor!

Each drop in print sales causes bookstore closures, which means less stores to sell books, which means lower print runs, which means higher printing costs, which means higher prices, which means another drop in print sales.

But this is only one of a series of vicious circles that mean the end of any significant market share for print and bricks-and-mortar bookstores.

"Watching Nosferatu is like struggling to remember a dream upon awakening: It’s a montage of fairy-tale fragments, starting from the moment that Max Schreck as Orlock creeps like a spider from his burrow across his castle courtyard to welcome the fly into his parlor ."

An essay on Great Film Draculas: Max Schreck as Nosferatu:

Don't take the easy road
Why it's good to put our characters through the tough stuff, the stuff that changes them (and us) forever.

For any NCIS fans out there, I include fun Gibbs references. :D

Tidbits on changes in the publishing industry plus reflections on a NYT article that claims "Good spellers are often drawn to poetry and wordplay, while bad spellers, for whom language is a conduit and not an end in itself, can excel at representation and reportage."

Are Bad Spellers Better Reporters? Are Good Spellers Better Poets?

How should women be referred to in a manuscript? There seems to be a bit of debate.
