Friday Miscellany

1. For fun, I've been creating character LJ icons for my trio. Right now I'm using Pirates of the Carribean quotes, because they seemed to fit. I may post other quotes, or would it be better to just post the blanks and let folks apply their own text? Talia's is my favorite. Snow's bugs me a little because of the objectification factor, but it also sounds very much like something she'd say, so I chose to leave it. What do you think?



Please help yourself to any or all. (Though if you do, please mention me and/or the books in the keywords. Thanks!)

2. Last call for workshop submissions for the Penguicon Writing Workshop with catvalente and myself! Deadline is Sunday, 3/15.

3. I'm working on a follow-up post to the anger issue. Right now it's simmering in my brain, but hopefully I'll have something coherent soon. In the meantime, Mary Anne Mohanraj wrote up a long and thoughtful post about racism and privilege on John Scalzi's blog which I think is worth reading, even if you don't agree with 100% of what she says. She's planning a second post specifically for writers. I'm looking forward to it.

4. My son is going through a kiss-happy phase, which is both cute and endearing. Also, I seem to have caught his cold. I think these things may be related in some way, but I took some good drugs to deal with the congestion, and now I can't quite figure out the connection....

5. Going to see Watchmen tonight. Will cold drugs improve or take away from the experience, do you think?
