Comments: It doesn't take a flock to be dangerous

Does your brain every worry you?

Every minute of every day of my life. (Nights are for worrying about other things.)

Dumnorfs and Kweedits, Oh My!

I kind of wish you did have those other blogs; I'd love to see what you'd do in a more literary mode. This was fun.

I love this post, and I can't even put my finger on why. Maybe it's the 9+ hour work day (and counting)...

I hope you three understand that I'm a little worried to discover you're all crazier than I am.

But...wait! Ahistoricality made no comment on the quality of the post. Elayne is clearly exhausted from work.

Okay, Jonathan, what's your excuse? :-)

I could write you a novel? As it happens, I have a first line or two going spare at the moment.

The sun tumbled up into the sky in an excess of early-morning enthusiasm.

Do anything for you?

How about this one:

His name was Mercutio because his mother loved Shakespeare and his father loved his mother.

I have a soft spot for absurdism, at least in small doses and when there's the implication of a more complicated and interesting story in the background. Chalk it up to a youth spent rereading the annotated Lewis Carroll, the works of Henry Kuttner and Harlan Ellison, Terry Pratchett....

I also believe that there are many of us who have the ability to write interesting and readable novels, the sorts that aren't being written much these days.... I'd love to spend some time working on artistic projects outside of my expertise, and I love the idea that you -- who I respect a great deal -- might be doing so.

Also, I very much understand the idea of having multiple blogs for multiple outlets....
