So… how ’bout them internets?
It can be such a useful tool. Unlimited information, right at your fingertips. Anything and everything you ever wanted to know, just a key stroke away. What could go wrong?
*laughs inside her cave of self-denial*
Anyway, so the internet. It’s an addiction, like any other. And instead of joining some hoity-toity twelve-step program, I’m going to share with you the three places I’m addicted to the most. You know, share the pain, misery loves company, that whole lark.
But first! Something to make you cry: One Cat, Three Lives by Hiroyuki Ito. I’m serious about the crying thing. I had to hide in the bathroom at my day office while I sobbed like a little girl. (Or boy? I suppose boys can sob just as wretchedly. And believe me, it was wretched.)
Right! Tears over. Here are the three places that I procrastinate–I mean, frequent the most on these ol’ inter-webs.
Lilith Saintcrow, as I believe I have mentioned before, is my favorite author. I find her work not only to be exceedingly enjoyable, but she herself to be inspiring and a wonderful role-model when it comes to the biz. Her site hosts a slew of posts on anything from writing advice to words of wisdom on life.
Also, squirrels. She posts a lot about squirrels. And those are my very favorite posts.
I kid you not, people, the very first thing I do when I load up my computer in the morning is check to see if she’s updated her site. I do this before I check my email. Really.
If you’re interested in writing, especially if you want to be published someday, I highly recommend going through her archives and poking around a bit at her writing advice. And even if you’re NOT interested in writing, I recommend looking up her series called squirrel terror. It is fabulous.
The second place you can find me with any reliability is at Chuck Wendig’s site. And I think, after visiting there yourselves, you’ll understand why.
HIS BLOG IS AMAZING AND YOU ALL NEED TO READ IT.
Last but not least, is tumblr. Oh, the hours I have spent, roaming its labyrinthine halls, every turn taking me deeper into its pits teeming with unabashed geekery…
*cough* I always tend to wax poetic when it comes to tumblr.
Tumblr is my greatest time-suck. I can easily spend hours on this site. Lately, I’ve been traversing the Avengers fandom and Deadpool-related paraphernalia. (Oh gods, some of the cosplay is magnificent). My archives are filled with hundreds of posts of fanart and silly memes. And gifs. Oh lord, the gifs. (Don’t get me started on fan videos!)
If any of you are interested, my tumblr blog is domesticated-chaos.tumblr.com. It’s a seething cesspool of superhero debauchery, I’m warning you. But if you’re into that sort of thing, there you go.
Just… don’t say I didn’t warn you.
And there you have it folks. Top three reasons why I can’t get my work done on time. Oh, the humanity– I mean, internet.
Until next time!
