I sent off a revision of my Anonymous Lawyer movie script at 5AM this morning, after a very long night working on it. And somehow this seems to have opened up a flood of unexpected blogging today. Interesting. Here are some things I have recently kept open in my web browser:
** I wrote a guest post about New York, and answered some questions about writing and about Anonymous Lawyer over here at Paperback Dolls last Friday. So if you want to know about my parents' fear of Manhattan, or what talent I would most like to have, feel free to check it out.
** This article in today's LA Times, called The Zuckerberg Revolution, talks about status updates and Twitter posts being the death of real communication. I've beaten that drum before. It is interesting to read other people's takes on the same idea.
** This long article from yesterday's NY Times, about a sociopath selling knock-off designer eyeglasses on the Internet and threatening his customers when they try to return them, was a terrific read, and I think there could be a cool half-hour cable show with a character like this as the lead. I've told a couple of people this, and they didn't agree. If anyone agrees with me, tell me, because I kind of want to be motivated to try and write something like it, but showing it to people who think it's a bad idea isn't helping to get me writing.
** A guy who writes other people's term papers for a living. Good article.
** And a slightly addictive game that I stumbled across a couple of weeks ago and should probably block.
