Link Blitz

In case you've been wondering about my progress, I've unlocked both the white and black yoshis on Yoshi Story, AND unlocked all the second- and third-page levels. Also Ghost Castle on page 6, which was a little freaky. I really want to unlock round #4 on page six--it's supposed to be the hardest, and all I can remember from childhood was a big dragon and lots of lava. (Don't worry, the dragon was friendly.)

Oh, yeah. And writing is good, too.

Anyway, the Interwebs was exploding with great links this week! Enjoy.

  1. I visited the link with the Women and SF Fantasy book covers and couldn't help falling out of my chair. I rolled, embarrassed myself in front of my kiddo and recognized the poignant point Jim was making.

    Extra hiliarious :-)

  2. Great link blitz.
    I personally liked '5 Narrative Mistakes...' and '25 Things ...'


  3. "25 Things" was great, if profane. I find myself at one time or another being guilty of most of them. :/

    And the Women Fantasy Poses was terrific. Wish he'd done a few more (like the covers from WorldCon, yikes!)

    Here's to plugging away...

  4. Awesome links! I just clicked on quite a few. Off to check them out!
