I read a lot of blogs in Google Reader, and I’m horribly far behind right now on posting some things I’ve been wanting to post about. Let’s see how many I can sneak in today, shall we?
Ah, that unfinished novel. The one you’ve completely given up on, you’ve lost half of it to a bad hard drive and aren’t possible able to recreate it. The one you wrote ten years ago and never got back to. The one you’ve given up on finding a way out of. Post it at myunfinishednovels.com.
Keira Rathbone makes art with a typewriter – visual art. “One of Keira’s mediums is the use of vintage typewriters to create her art. Typing out letters, numbers and symbols in place of brush strokes and pixels results in beautiful enigmatic images.” Very cool:

Rachelle Gardner posed an intriguing question over on her blog: Would you rather receive a million dollars for a book that no one will ever read, or have one million people read your book but never make a dime? I have to say, reading through only some of the comments, I’m in the minority. Yes, I write not because of the money, but because I have to – if I didn’t write, I would go crazy. But for exactly that reason, I would be perfectly okay with no one ever reading a specific book I write – because there will be another. And I’ll have a million dollars. I don’t know, that’s how I feel – what about you?
How do you keep track of the books you’ve read (or want to read)? I started using WeRead through Facebook, but I’ve also heard of GoodReads. Is one better than the other? Is it worth trying to bring everything over from one site to the other? Thoughts, anyone?
