Weekend Grab Bag – From Writing Tips to LOTR as band instruments

Ah, another Saturday morning and I’m sipping a cup of Yerba Maté tea and listening to the sweet sounds of raccoons fighting in the ceiling and walls above and around me. Song playing right now on my playlist: “He Won’t Go,” Adele.

Writing and the Writing Life:

Romance Writers:

Jane Austen:

  • Over at the new blog, The Popular Romance Project, Dr. Sarah Frantz wrote a piece called Austen, romance novelist about the reluctance of some Janeites to call her books Romances because it’s good literature, so of course it can’t be Romance…


  • An artist has done some awesome posters of different sci-fi favorites reworked various ways. Here’s his Firefly Muppets mashup

Randomness and Geekdom:

  1. Excellent collection of links, Angela. I especially liked the one about questions for eBook publishing and the Shakespearean Three Little Pigs was verily much to the amusement and edification of my spirit, forsoothly. Big “Firefrog” fan as well.

  2. Great information, but I have to confess what really struck me was your raccoon problem. As I was reading this, I was being serenaded by the pitter-patter of the flying squirrels we just evicted from our attic, who still case out the roof daily trying to find a way back in!

    • Oh God, we have squirrels too! We can’t seem to get rid of either ones…. It’s a 3-story old Victorian and they use the walls as one big habitrail!
