My writing group has a new blog! We'll be talking writing, reading, and...whatever else seems like a good idea at the time.

This is interesting: Subscribe to the NY Times (digital) for a year, get a free Nook.

When I spend my lunch hour revising a story, and the changes don't get saved.

It's usually user error, but seriously, who at DataViz decided that when you close a modified file, the "save" and "save as" buttons should be unobtrusive gray and the "don't save changes" button should be bright red and at the top of the list? Why is "discard all my hard work" the preferred option?

Von Rothbart didn't like Prince Siegfried because the prince made fun of his swoopy cape. Odette had nothing to do with it.

That was a bad thought to have during the Rothbart/Siegfried fight scene at the end of Swan Lake. Rather ruined the dramatic effect.

At least I escaped without buying a jigsaw puzzle.

And boy, am I wobbly. Doing yoga only helps with the balance so much.
