(no subject)

Today everyone will be off at WorldCon and DragonCon having fun without us. I just thought I'd point that out.

Thanks again to everyone for the birthday wishes! Troyce took me out last night for a great birthday dinner at out local fancy restaurant, and it was delicious. It involved Vietnamese lettuce-wrap eggrolls and duck in a blueberry reduction. Yummy. Today I am writing and doing an immense amount of laundry and trying to make it rain via the power of will.


Gregory Frost at The Liars Club: Dear thank you Burning Question: How do you deal with rejection?

It's an important thing to think about, because if you want to be a professional writer, you're going to face rejection, most likely throughout your entire career.

September is Be Kind To Editors and Writers Month That would be nice if it actually happened, but I kind of doubt it.

About the posting random postless LJ comments to Facebook thing? I think it's very strange, and about the last thing Facebook needs. I am on Facebook, Twitter, and Dreamwidth, and I post links to my public LJ posts on FB and Twitter, and I repost my public posts on Dreamwidth, because I have people who follow me on different services but don't have LJ accounts.
