Friends Only.

So, I figured out how to do the whole Friends Only thing, finally.  It's probably prudent, so I'm locking my shit down.



Comment and I'll add you.

Ting-a-ling!

I just saw this on someone else's LJ and wanted to re-post it here.  I hadn't seen them in a while.

Kurt Vonnegut's Rules for Writing:
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.

2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.

3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.

4. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.

5. Start as close to the end as possible.

6. Be a sadist. No matter sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.

7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.

8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.

Words to live by, as a writer.  And I do.

Now I'm going to edit my latest story and post it here.  I don't care if it doesn't get published.  LiveJournal shouldn't count as being previously published anyway.

Karaoke

I'ma 'bout to get up in the pub and do some karaoke.

That's my new favorite thing to do ever.  In honor of my new obsession, I have a top five, for good old times' sake.

Top 5 karaoke songs

5.  "Take On Me" - A-ha
4.  "Love Is A Battlefield" - Pat Benatar
3.  "Under Pressure" - Queen and David Bowie
2.  "Livin' On A Prayer" - Bon Jovi
1.  "Bohemian Rhapsody" - Queen

Pretty much any Queen song will do, especially if you're like me and you have the same range and operatic gusto as Freddie Mercury.
