Being a half-orc Ranger is going to be lots of fun. Get to negative hit-points but Orcs stand until they fall down. Yesterday: negative hps 1 round, back to 0 before next round. Attack - drop down below 0 again. Up to 4 by next round, then down to -11 (with a 12 con) - but still standing. Another round, another heal. Nothing can stop an orc!

Ferocity is wonderful even once per day! Not everyone gets to be an unstoppable juggernaut. There's a feat that makes half-orcs amazing at Intimidate (if they have strength) if you want to be good at some kinds of talking, heh heh heh. My inquisitor is into Bluff and Intimidate but thinks Diplomacy is for weenies. :)

Day 2 - least favorite song. This was a tough one, because I really like a lot of music. And I tend to listen to my own mixes so don't hear a lot of the stuff I dislike - but this song (no matter who it's by) always gets skipped. Always. (although Katy Perry I kissed a girl was my other choice)

So - to all my friends who like to write fiction - any interest in starting a weekly writing project? +Angela Leach used to have a micro writing project once a week where she came up with a topic and then everyone would (micro) write on it. As in only 1 or 2 paragraphs. Wherever your mind took you.

I think this could be fun if you created a circle where writers and those who like to read them could join. We could take turns suggesting the following weeks topic (or do it more often) but the idea is to learn from each other and hone our own craft. I really learned a lot from doing them!

Hmm - a thought on etiquette. If one person can post to various types of circles, would it be feasible to ask people in their stream to exclude/include them in certain circles? Maybe you don't want to hear all of your best friend's gardening tips, but really want to hear all the stuff about their day to day life?

Of course that means more watchful and thoughtful posting.

+Stacy S One problem with Google's implementation of circles is that a post shared less-than-publicly cannot ever be reshared publicly. So if I were to share something from the Chronicle of HIgher Education with my educators circle, no one there could share it publicly. Well, they could, by copying and pasting -- but the purpose of the share link is to reduce friction.

This is a great idea - and no you don't have to do video. Maybe it would push me to write more!

How to Have a Writers' Hangout in Google+

Truly, this will work for any form of creative work in which one usually is locked into solitary confinement. The goal with these hangouts is to have a little bit of socializing to break up the process of creation. At the same time, having folks around makes it easier to not get distracted by my sudden pressing need to vacuum the cat.

I’ve played with this for the past several days and it’s kind of like hanging out at a coffee shop but I get to bring my own cats and don’t have to worry about what part of the world the other writers are in.

You can pick any structure, but this one seems to work well.

1. Put up a post saying that you are going to have a writing date at [x] time OR just spontaneously open a hangout.

2. As soon as the hangout is open, place a comment on it that states that it is a writing date and what the parameters are.

3. Suggested parameters: "We’ll chat for fifteen minutes. Then at quarter past we’ll start writing for forty-five minutes. On the hour, there’s another 15 minute break for chat… Rinse and repeat. If you want to join in mid-way, that’s fine, but we’ll just wave at you until the next break."

4. Continue until you need to log off. If the other participants are still going, they will be able to keep writing after you leave.

(Nina Kiriki Hoffman uses this time cycle real life hangouts. Thanks to Amy Sundberg for drawing my attention to it)

The advantage of the time method is that anyone joining after the start can look at the clock and know whether they are coming in during social time or writing time.

We've also had groups in which some people were writing and some were drawing.

Mix and match the instructions to come up with something that works for you. But definitely-- Hang out and be creative.

FAQ:
Q. Do I have to have a camera?
A. No. We've had people join in who were chat only. It works fine.

Q. Isn't it weird having people watching you?
A. If you squish the screen over to the side, everyone is really, really tiny. The screen rotates so a different person is in view.

Q. What if I need to take a break before the time is up.
A. Do! Just know that you are a total writing wimp. (Just kidding).

Q. What if I want to listen to music?
A. That's okay, just mute your microphone so you don't bother the other writers.

Seriously - if I wanted a blackberry, I'd be buying blackberry. Not a fan of this kind of keyboard eating up my screen area!

This song always reminds me of someone. Someone who makes me feel just like this song. Thanks for making me smile.

Snapping fingers makes me happy. Wish I could have found one with the singer that played well. He's a cutie

I'm going to do the 30 day song challenge (yes yes I'm a follower) but mostly because I love music and love sharing music.

day 01 - your favorite song #30daysongchallenge

For me, there is no ONE favorite song. But I love songs that can make me move and Johnny Reid always makes me me want to move. But more importantly is the thought behind this song. That there's a bit of gypsy in my soul too.

Huh - now if they'd bring Zelda to iPad I could see a reason to own one. Better yet put it on the android pad!

Now I'm getting information about the best new phones on Verizon and none of them look that great. Those of you that use a Droid (on Verizon) - what is the best phone?
