Weekend Grab Bag – From Writing Tips to Whedon as Bathroom Coach

Song playing right now on my playlist: “Monday Morning” Fleetwood Mac

Writing and the Writing Life:

Ada Lovelace:

  • If you’d like to see a Serenity LEGO model crafted by LEGO, sign up here. Less than 900 votes needed to make this a reality!
  • Have you seen Avengers yet?? I can’t wait to get some Joss Whedon goodness. Am going today if I can…
  • Did anyone else catch Nathan Fillion live tweeting Out of Gas and Ariel last Sunday? It was really cool, but distracting, as I was doing word sprints at the time. Plus it was making me sad hearing him talk of his love of the show.
  • for some Whedon weirdness, check out Whedon as Bathroom Coach (h/t the Nerdist):

In Geekdom:

  • check out what the instructions are on Google Maps for the walking option, if you type in directions for The Shire to Mordor
  • And I’ll leave you with this:

  1. Lovely group of links, as always!

    • Thanks Kate!

      • You’re welcome but I must say…the link to Whedon as bathroom coach brings up the Serentiy Legos thing. Shame cause I was so looking forward to that. Lovely Storm Troopers photo though. 🙂

      • oops! Thanks for letting me know! Fixed it, and embedded it this time….

  2. Thanks for the links! Saw Avengers today and LOVED it:) Do you subscribe to the comic/movie/TV blog http://biffbampop.com/
    It’s totally awesome & they’re always giving away stuff:)

    • OMG, I just got back like 10 minutes ago and I can’t even say enough about that movie! Holy moly! Just tweeted this: “If I was a directr wanting to make a superhero movie, I’d set my camera down, get on my knees, bow down to Whedon & say ‘u win’ #theavengers”

  3. Hi Angela,

    I enjoy your blog and find the friday mashups incredibly useful. I nominated you for the versatile blogger award. Good luck with your writing and have fun with the award if you so choose.


  4. Thanks for the links, Angela! I’m starting to love seeing posts from your blog in my inbox. 🙂 Now I’m off to check out the new conference posts at the Knight Agency’s site… 🙂

  5. Wow. Um…fyi, the use of two smilies in a comment was totally unintentional. hehehee
