Happy Wednesday, guys! And what a week it’s been. I’ve been social, I’ve written A LOT, I’ve read a decent amount, and I’ve been caring for H. after he came down with a debilitating toe injury. Okay, so he just sprained his big toe by tripping on the stairs, but, as it turns out, a sprained toe makes it hard to do a lot of things. Like walk. Or drive. Or get up off the couch and get your own popsicles. While I will gladly take care of him and do all of our errands myself until he’s out of that orthopedic boot, I now know for sure that I’d be a terrible nurse. I mean, I already knew that, but now I really know it. I wouldn’t do this for anyone I’m not related to/married to.
On with the links! I promise that none of them are related to toe sprains.
Jami Attenberg, all-around great lady, shares some wisdom on Oprah.com.
A GREAT interview with Tig Notaro. Tig Notaro is always great, but she is especially awesome here.
This vintage safety booklet made me laugh out loud. I’ve never read the phrase “crippled for life” so many times.
Kate Hart on why she writes YA.
I love the Real-Life Style Icons series on Yes and Yes, and this one is especially cute.
Karen Russell talks about all kinds of writerly stuff. I’ve loved Karen Russell ever since I heard an interview with her and realized she doesn’t suffer from Pretentious Writer’s Voice. She sounds sort of raspy and fun, like a normal person. I love her.
