At Last, Something to Say

Have you ever had one of those periods where you just have nothing to say? I’ve had six weeks of it.

Went to a kick-ass hands-on workshop on self-publishing, taught by Boise mystery and SF writer Ken McConnell — no comment, everyone knows Ken has mad skillz

Sent a novella out for critique with plans to self-publish it — no comment since I haven’t really heard much back yet.

Stock market hits record highs — no comment.

Stock market tanks 200+ points in a day — no comment.

Bombs at the Boston Marathon — no comment (really, what can you say other than “Oh my god, so horrible, so horrible” and everyone else is saying that).

West, Texas, fertilizer plant explosion — no comment (see Boston Marathon, above).

Linked In e-mail that a friend has endorsed me for my knowledge of Unix — wait, what? I don’t know anything about Unix. Okay, I can spell it and name the most popular distributions (Red Hat and Ubuntu), but I can’t install it or use a command line at all. The only command I know is SUDO, which is very dangerous in the hands of a Unix-ignorant person such as myself. What in the wide-open world is going on over at Linked In?

Oh. I had something to say about that. I guess I’m out of my no-opinion slump.
