So what? I'm atypical.

This is one of those five things for Friday things...on a Saturday...and I am using letters so that I keep it under twenty-six and they're prettier anyway.

A) I don't usually do the 'go here now and follow' thing, but GO HERE NOW AND FOLLOW!  This guy, Karsten Knight, has a book coming out in 2011, but in the short-term he is going to dance to something once he gets one hundred followers. I voted for "Single Ladies" and I totally want to see this.

B) Have you ever heard of Evernote?  I have been on a cleanup kick.  I did my books last week and my computer's library this week.  Today, I did my browser's(Chrome) bookmarks, of which I have over three hundred.  I used Evernote as a sorting system to decide what to keep and what to toss.  I hate printing things out, so Evernote is brilliant for me.  Everytime I add something, I can put it in a folder and add tags to it.  Seriously, it's amazing and free.  Go download it and start organizing, unless you suckrock and have a gorgeousmachineMac.

C) As you may have seen in my last post I have started a new WiP and I am excited about it.  Like uber-excited!  Yup.  Oh, it's called EXTINGUISHED.

D) I have been posting in weird ways lately.  I'll go a week with nada and then post three days in a row.  While you guys may be fine with this, I find it awfully hard to deal with and I am setting a sched.  Now, my old followers know that I used to blog seven days a week and it was awesome.  Yeah, burnt out in about three weeks of that, so I am going to give you two totally awesome posts a week on Tuesday and Thursday.  There are a lot of reasons I chose those two days, but mainly it's because they both start with a 't', so it's easier to remember.  I will be posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Okay, so questions?

E) You tell me.

Oh, F)  haha, I need your help.  Will you head over to W.I.B.I.J.?! and read our recap post and provide feedback in the form off to the right?  It's anonymous.  Even if you haven't played the game, I believe your feedback about layout and content will be invaluable.


  1. Hi Jon - see you've been busy tweeting! :)

    That's great you are excited about your new wip. I think a writing schedule and a blogging schedule is a good idea! B/c that's what I have. And I'm happy to say we haven't caught any more mice in our basement. :)

  2. Good luck with Extinguished. It's fantastic getting new ideas.

    I just posted a suggestion for Karsten. He'll reach 100 followers very fast.

  3. EXTINGUISHED! I can't wait until I'm sprinkling it with 5 stars on Goodreads. You know I'm going to.

  4. Great title, Jon! Good luck with Extinguished!!

  5. Good luck with your wip! I just made a blogging schedule and am working on sticking to it. It seems to be helping keep me on track.
