Good News

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more? Have you found a cute picture or a video that makes you smile? Is there anything your online friends could do to make your life a little happier?

NaNoWriMo: Will you post your book online?

NaNoWriMo will begin on November 1. So far it looks like at least 13 people from my audience are participating, with several more planning other writing projects.

Will you post your book online? Why or why not? It can go either way, and both are fine. I'll include another post tomorrow for authors to link their landing page and/or first post for their book.

Do you know of other NaNoWriMo participants who aren't listed here but plan to post online? If they are interested in more readers, by all means include a link so folks can find them.

All Will Be Remembered

[personal profile] zeeth_kyrah tipped me to an article about the Memory Of Mankind.  It's a salt mine where a farthinking fellow is caching records of everything on ceramic plates.  You can contribute text, donate funds, or volunteer.

This is just the kind of thing I've always wanted to do, although my plan was to put my poetry on ceramic plates and chuck them in the local landfill.  I'd love to contribute my writing to MOM, but the online form is for short works; books and such you have to do special.  It's free, though.  Buying a copy yourself is expensive, but caching doesn't cost anything.  Ideally I'd need someone to send them the text from my published books and the full-year fishbowl collections.  That's a good start on my work.
