Hearth

Thor's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to rintrahroars and sinboy!

State of the 'Song
Same. Also, I dreamed last night that we moved into an even smaller house, that for some reason I hadn't had a chance to see before we signed the lease, and I was freaking out because there was no room for anything or anyone. I... will probably be having these dreams for the next few months. AWESOME.

Link Soup
* jimhines has a great post about writing about rape, which is much of what I've been saying for the past few years on the Take Back the Sci-Fi panels, in easily-linkable form!
* Why “Yes, But” Is the Wrong Response to Misogyny.
* 25 things writers should stop doing.
* Omniglot: Details of more than 180 writing systems, including Abjads, Alphabets, Abugidas, Syllabaries and Semanto-phonetic scripts, and information about over 500 languages.
* Truly outrageous Jem costume/character redesigns.
* I think Atlas Obscura just got trolled, y'all.

Plans
Calling my doctor. Writing. E-mailing people in desperation begging them to take a shift at the Backup Project table.
