“The trouble with Twitter isn’t that it’s full of inanity and self-promoting jerks. The trouble is that it’s a solution to a problem that shouldn’t be solved. Eighty percent of the battle of writing involves keeping yourself in that cave: waiting out the loneliness and opacity and emptiness and frustration and bad sentences and dead ends and despair until the damn thing resolves into words. That kind of patience, a steady turning away from everything but the mind and the topic at hand, can only be accomplished by cultivating the habit of attention and a tolerance for solitude.”

How Twitter Hijacked My Mind – fantastic meditation by New York Magazine book critic Kathryn Schulz; bonus points for the Bukowski reference.  (via explore-blog)

I love Twitter. But this is true about getting any actual work done on my novels…

I owe a lot to that vanished group. Were you in it? I miss you.
Made this short comic for Dirty Diamonds #4- breakups. If you missed it at MICE and SPX this year, it’ll be at Asbury Park Comic Con in 2014, and fingers crossed for TCAF.

For a lot of Gen X and Gen Y, I imagine that this is going to hit home … it did for me.

Yea… Anyone from all those older Yahoo mailing groups about The Stone Roses? I still have some of those cassettes… Wonder what Burnweed’s doing now?
Actually, thanks to the brief MySpace blip, I managed to keep in touch with one person from that time - he’s on FB somewhere.

“We have an obligation to read aloud to our children. To read them things they enjoy. To read to them stories we are already tired of. To do the voices, to make it interesting, and not to stop reading to them just because they learn to read to themselves. Use reading-aloud time as bonding time, as time when no phones are being checked, when the distractions of the world are put aside”

When I taught a course on SFF criticism at the U of MN, I learned that none of my students had read Tolkien, beyond the essays of his I assigned them. So I read them The Hobbit. A chapter a day, at the beginning of class. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done as a teacher.
