Drop everything and go read this fantastic interview (by Stephany Aulenbeck) with Kelly Link over at Maud's. My favorite part (among many):
"Stories come from an intersection of things. For some stories, you don’t have so much as a starting place as a collision."
This describes my own way of finding stories perfectly. The interview is wonderful and inspiring to us writer types. Check it out.
Mary Relindes Ellis talks about we, the few, the proud, Midwest writers who resist New York.
For Sugu: Images of the Marvel Legends-esque new Obi Wan Kenobi figure. If you're any kind of Star Wars fan, this is simply one figure you have to own.
I put a few more links over on the sidebar, including the awesome Space Station Tracker.
