It’s Friday. April is flying past quickly, now. Amazing how time just keeps moving forward. My NaNoWriMo word count is not flying by, but then, I’m only counting net words, so whenever I delete stuff as I’m revising, that lowers my count.

Anyway, here is a collection of some of the things that I ran across over the course of the week which struck me as worthy of being shared:

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
