#financialfast   #personalfinance   #budgeting   Michelle Singletary is doing a Hangout Q&A on how to make a budget. I'm pretty psyched.
 
Join syndicated personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary March 5 at noon ET for this live Google Hangout Q&A to learn how to make a budget that will protect your finances and help you pay off your debt. 

One of the major components of Michelle's 21 Day Financial Fast is making a budget that reflects your values. In this Hangout, Michelle will explain how to set up your budget and use it to save for the things you want. If you've participated in the Financial Fast and struggled with the budget section, or if you haven't but would like to get your finances in order, this Hangout will help.

Submit your questions in advance by leaving a comment in this event, or by tweeting with #financialfast . Michelle will also take questions live during the Hangout.

Hey guys. The Washington Post is hosting a Google Hangout with Anthony Marra, author of one of this year's bestselling novels, "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena." We really want it to feel like a book club discussion - well, a book club where the book's author actually turns up! - and hope you'll join us by sharing your thoughts and questions here, or live during the Hangout (Friday at 12:30pm ET).

Have any of you read the book? Did you think it deserves to be named among the best of the year? What would you want to ask Anthony about it or about writing in general?
 
Join Washington Post book critic +Ron Charles and author Anthony Marra for a live Google Hangout Dec. 6 at 12:30 p.m. ET. We'll discuss Marra's debut novel, "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena," which topped the Post's list of the best fiction from 2013, as well as how to write ambitious fiction ... and anything else you want to ask about. Submit your questions in advance by posting a comment below, or ask them live during the Hangout.

When Ron Charles first reviewed "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena" he wrote:

"Go ahead and sneer at the thin atmosphere of America’s MFA programs, but this Washington-born graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop is a testament to the vibrancy of contemporary fiction. Here, in fresh, graceful prose, is a profound story that dares to be as tender as it is ghastly, a story about desperate lives in a remote land that will quickly seem impossibly close and important."

This just fundamentally changed my understanding of my childhood. Spice World is actually a big screen adaptation of Doctor Who. Seriously.

"Anyone who thinks social media is a valid replacement for an RSS-reader, leave the room now." -- HAHA. This meme is surprisingly reusable.

Hey guys. The Washington Post is hosting a Google Hangout with Anthony Marra, author of one of this year's bestselling novels, "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena." He's going to take questions about the book, obviously, but also about writing and his writing process, and we'd love for you all to join in. We really want it to feel like a discussion, and hope you'll be part of it by sharing your thoughts and questions here, or live during the Hangout (Friday at 12:30pm ET).

So, what do you want to ask Anthony about writing a novel, about tackling an ambitious topic, about finding success at a relatively young age, or any other topic you might be interested in? If you've read the book, do you think it deserves to be named among the best of the year?

In which Slate gets its knickers in a (very odd and inexplicable) twist. I'm not entirely sure what the author is complaining about, but it's worth reading just to watch all the commenters have the same reaction you do. Namely, ummm what? Thank you internet for validating my opinions.

Saw this in previews this weekend (for Broadway). Director came out to tell us it was the star's first performance (the role is shared between 4 little girls), which made it even more exciting (and a little scary at times - there are a lot of stunts in this show!). The story wasn't as strong as it could have been, but the songs, choreography, staging and special effects more than made up for it. And the talent these little kids have - just incredible.

Introduction
Hi, I'm Jessica, a social/engagement producer at the Washington Post. I got my start as a social/digital producer at the Voice of America, where I also ran VOA's Student Union blog. In my non-work life I dance and play the clarinet (in the nerdiest possible way).

If you have a burning desire to know more about me (really?), it's all on my website.
