I'm trying not to imagine what Hurricane Rita is doing to the folks over in Texas, which includes our pal Alison Kent and her loved ones. I've turned off the Weather Channel after watching it too much for the last couple days -- and you all are probably in the same state.

May our good thoughts be received, and our prayers heard, and the storm pass quickly.

Out and around the blogosphere:

It's Monica Jackson's birthday! (tossing cyber confetti) If you get a sec, do go over and harrass her about it.

Jo Leigh has posted some interesting quotations about writing and would like to hear your favorites.

Natasha Hoar is the designer who created my new sidebar link, Writers Against Racism. I've never borrowed one of these for PBW before, but this one illustrates my feelings perfectly. You can get a copy for your weblog over at Natasha's LJ here.

Stephanie Tyler is blogging and slogging through the Dreaded Middle-of-the-Book doldrums; if you have any strategies that help you get through you might stop in and share them.

I'm experiencing some e-mail problems here (the joys of new security software messing with the ISP, plus sporadic power outtages from the fringe of Rita aren't helping.) At the moment I can receive, but I can't send, so I need to pass along some messages here:

Steph: that package we discussed is en route as of yesterday via UPS, in case someone on the other end needs a heads-up.

Morgan: If something weird shows up on your end, it's probably mine. The Pony Express is starting to look very attractive.

Sasha: yours came through fine tonight -- thank you so much.

    Pony express? We're using Gator Express down home. Course, you get teeth marks in your packages, but they get there through the flooded (again) streets.

    Amazingly enough, we think we'll be mostly unharmed by Rita too. We're too far to the East and protected by a strong levee system. Hope that tarp stays on my roof. I can't quite see it from Fort Collins, Colorado.

    We'll see.

    Cheers and best of luck to all taking cover from Mother Nature's latest hissy fit.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up!

    And the other package we discussed is going out in about an hour :)

    Hi Lynn - funny story, I googled my name (don't ask ;)) and your blog popped up mentioning the Writers Against Racism icon! I just wanted to say thank you for choosing to use it, and a big thank you for linking back to my LJ from it - that was an incredibly kind gesture, and one that is deeply appreciated.

    Have a nice day!
