- Jim Butcher reveals The Most Important Thing an Aspiring Author Needs to Know.  Well said, sir, well said.

- Did you make a wish at 11:11 this morning? Some NaNoWriMo peeps are doing an 11 hour writing challenge to bulk up word counts!

- It's also Veteran's Day today!  My father served during Operation: Desert Storm. I still remember the day he came home after being gone for so long. It was late at night and we went to a big field with lots of other families to welcome back the returning soldiers. We made a banner out of an old bed sheet to carry as we waited.

- S.E. Sinkhorn is hosting a great giveaway on her blog, and OMG is that the Leviathan trilogy?? WANT. Check out her blog for the contest details.
