I have been enjoying my procrastinating this week. I went on a mini amazon buying spree and my to-read list has expanded again. Monday, I put aside my Venom fanfic and read “Mugging the Muse” by Holly Lisle instead. Yesterday and this morning, I started two new books. They’ve been delaying my fiction reading but I’m pretty happy anyway.
The first is “It Came From Beneath the Slush Pile: 20 Kinds of Stupid” also by Holly Lisle. It has 20 short stories by different authors and then a description after each one of why they are not good short stories. Here’s the amazon link; it was free on Monday and I’m so glad that I grabbed it. It is useful information presented in a fun way.
I also started, “Dear Writer, You Need to Quit” by Becca Syme. On deck but not yet started is, “2K to 10K: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love” by Rachel Aaron.
I also discovered a fun website with a random conflict generator: https://storytoolz.com/generator/conflict
We’re schedule for a critter meet and greet at the Denver Aquarium on Sunday. We’re going to meet their Binturong, otherwise known as a Malay Civit Cat or an Asian Bearcat. The description warned that the encounter might not be a good choice for someone who isn’t comfortable with an animal who has no boundaries and the reviews of the encounter describe it as a very interactive experience. I’m excited. I might end up skipping writing much of anything on Sunday though. It will depend how wiped out I after the trip.
