Happy Hallowe’en everyone! I went as Lilo, from Lilo and Stitch. I wish I had a picture I could post, but you’ll just have to use your imagination. For what it’s worth, I was cute.
Here are the links from G+ and Twitter:
It’s Not a Sprint, it’s a Marathon: NaNoWriMo is upon us again…but writing 50,000 words in one month isn’t everyone’s style. If you’d prefer to build up a regular habit of writing everyday, Johnny Dale offers you a Couch-to-5K type of regimen for writing.
Adventures in Depression: Allie Brosh of Hyperbole and a Half tells you what it’s like to feel depressed. The story doesn’t have an uplifting ending, necessarily, but it’s an incredibly accurate depiction of the mental voice depressed people have in their heads all the time.
Bartender set alight in Gay Slaying: 28-year-old gay bartender Stuart Walker from England was tied to a lamp-post, beaten, and then set on fire left to burn to death last week. Yes, we live in the 21st century. What the hell, people.
Have a Who Hallowe’en: For my Doctor Who fans, do I have the mother lode for you. Cast and Crew of Doctor Who lip-dub to The Proclaimers’ “I wanna be (500 miles)”. John Barrowman, Catherine Tate, and David Tennant salute Russell T. Davies and Julie Gardner for an epic run on NuWho…in song. Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill beatbox the Doctor Who theme in an elevator. Catherine Tate and David Tennant do a hilarious skit for Red Nose Comic Relief, and sing a duet in Much Ado About Nothing.
Here are the posts from around the blog:
