Inspirational Nugget of the Day: Moon Harvesting

So remember that Inspirational Post I did a little while back, about intergalatic space travel?

Turns out that wasn't the end of it. Very soon, it seems, we could all be powered on Moon-harvested biofuels.

From a writer's POV, what is the outlook from here? A new form of biofuel or the beginning of the end of the Moon's ever-loving presence in our sky? Apocalypse or life-saving venture?

Inspiration, AHOY!

Things that make Monday worthwhile, Part 2

Last Monday I posted some good news regarding my friend Shannon Messenger.

Keeping with the good-news vein (because, let's face it, good news is INFINITELY BETTER than bad news), Shannon is hosting a WISHES COME TRUE contest in celebration of the awesomeness that is being unleashed upon the Universe in her name. Because her publisher is Aladdin.

That is so much fun it makes me squeal a little.

Shannon has clearly harnessed all the possibilities of being published by a publisher with such a FUN NAME. Not to mention that Aladdin is by far the best Disney movie, so that instantly adds two or three degrees of FUN on top of the already fun-filled excitingness of being published.

So go over there and partake in the magic wish-fulfilling that Shannon is bestowing upon us. Because you ain't never had a friend like her. YEAH!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go watch Aladdin.

The only thing that makes Monday worthwhile...

...is waking up to REALLY GOOD NEWS.

Shannon is one of the MAD SCIENTISTS behind a little thing you may have heard of: WriteOnCon. She's also nice and considerate and the gosh darn cutest Rainbow Brite ever. And she's also insanely talented, which helps with the whole soon-to-be-world-famous thing.

CONGRATS, Shannon!

Inspirational Nugget of the Day: To Infinity and Beyond

Soon enough, Star Wars won't be just science fiction.

The beginnings of intergalactic space travel? The start of habitation on other planets? A metaphorical quest to reach a star?

I especially love that they asked science fiction authors to be on the panels for this conference. Imagintion FTW.
