  • How To: Unfolding a novel out of cluttered thoughts – “If you’re an organized person, you might rush to your computer, open a DOCX file and start creating an outline. If you’re a disorganized person, you might wander the blue highways of Florida for a few years and see what kinds of ideas come to mind. Maybe you’ll even find the fountain of youth. I don’t advocate either approach.” Malcolm R. Campbell in The Sun Singer’s Travels
  • News: Jane Austen family letters offer ‘deeply personal’ insight into author’s world – “California’s Huntington Library has acquired 52 unpublished letters and poems from the family of the Pride and Prejudice author’s mother.” – The Guardian
  • menkenHistory: “On this day in 1931, the Arkansas legislature passed a motion to pray for the soul of H. L. Mencken. One of Mencken’s Laws was ‘Nature abhors a moron,’ and one of his favorite pastimes was to attack the South; upon finding itself elevated to ‘the apex of moronia,’ Arkansas had apparently had enough.” – Today in Literature

I thought nature abhorred vacuums which is why the Hoover sits unused in my garage more often than not. But if nature really doesn’t like morons, perhaps it’s because they (the morons) either have nothing inside their heads or act like Hoovers, gathering up whatever’s on the floor.
