Oh gosh, how did it get to be Tuesday already?? My father-in-law was up visiting, so I’ve been in vacation mode for the last four days. We got back to school this morning, and the rest of my regularly scheduled activities will follow (blogging, laundry, sweeping, etc).
An older post, but still worthwhile: Ten Killer Tactics for Developing a New Skill. It can be hard for me to go about learning new skills that are not immediately related to my current work. It’s too easy to play to my strengths, rest on my laurels, read some brain candy, to push off the important-but-not-urgent to another day.
For those who blog to inform others, here’s a good reminder to focus on solving reader problems.
Looks like the second novel in the Newbury & Hobbes series is out (I reviewed The Affinity Bridge in my last reading roundup), along with some free short fiction featuring the same characters.
This is really neat. Tor has commissioned several different artists to create new covers for the e-book releases of The Wheel of Time series, and has a number of blog posts detailing the evolution process of each cover. This one is so rich in detail and color.
Edited to change the date of posting to the correct date instead of three days earlier!

Love that cover! I love it when they do colors like that.
I am temporarily putting a heavy crimp in new skill learning (outside of the HTRYN mess), but bookmarked for future use. 😀
