If you're a writer,  you might find this interesting.

The fine folks at the Self Publishing Podcast are doing a kickstarter thing (which in itself you might find interesting) but that's not the thing that I think is interesting here.

No, it's this Thunderclap thing that they are using to try to drum up some support for their kickstarter thing.

Imagine for a moment that you had a book launch and you wanted all of the people who liked your stuff to tweet about the new book on launch day. You'd ask, they'd say yes, and some of them would actually follow through.

But not all.

Enter Thunderclap.

Thunderclap takes care of the follow through. You ask. The fans say yes. And when the day comes, Thunderclap sends the message for you.

I've never heard of it before. I have no idea if it actually works. I'm a tiny bit concerned that you're giving someone else permission to send tweets (or Facebook or Tumblr posts) in your name.

But it intrigues me so I signed up to participate and will be paying a little bit of attention to how the whole thing works.

+Kameron Hurley has a habit of writing phenomenal blog posts. She's one of those folks who don't blog just for the sake of blogging or building up a platform or any of that stuff.

She writes when she has something to say and, if you want to live a deliberate life, where you anticipate the consequences of your actions, and where you think of all the secondary and tertiary characters in your life as actual people, I think you would be well served by reading what she has to say.

So my wife takes pain pills for pain. The delightful laws we have regarding controlled substances like pain pills require that we drive up to the doctor's office to pick up the prescription.

Normally, she has enough extra pills to make it non crucial that we get the prescription on precisely the earliest possible date. Sometimes, though, it's a bad month. This was a bad month.

The phone message at the doctor's office says they close at 1:30. We get to the office at about 1:22 and they're gone because they really close at 1.

You may note that this is Friday. The doctor is not there until Monday.

She has three pills.

The prescription is for four a day and she has three pills to last until Monday.

If they could call in a prescription, just like every other @#$%@$ drug she takes, it would be no problem.

If they could mail the prescription, it would be no problem.

But they can't because this country cares more about being seen to be hard on drugs than it does about actually helping people.

In almost all ways, American drug policies are backwards.

Because we have less taxable income than medical expenses, we cannot e-file.

Because most people e-file, the post offices decided not to be open late this year.

The nearest post office that is open late is in another state.

I write stuff. Maybe you'll like it.
Introduction
In first grade, my teacher asked the kids to vote on what book she was going to read to us during story time. I raised my hand for one thing. The entire rest of the class raised their hand for The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

I have been holding minority opinions and reading fantasy stories ever since.

I survived the Blizzard of '78 with the most awesome snow forts ever.
