Today, I am going to relocate to Borders where I do not have free wifi and can't go on ridiculous Internet journeys. Although--Wikipedia is proving to be a wonderful research tool. For instance, just a few minutes ago, I learned what the Areopagus was in Athens. And promptly incorporated it in my novel. Conveniently, we are in Athens at the moment. And Athens is my favorite Greek city to be in (hypothetically, of course).
More importantly, I discovered Weronika's blog. And I think everyone needs to go check it out. Because inferior as it makes me feel to read about a super amazing, super successful TEEN writer, it is also heartening to read beautiful writing. She has beautiful writing. I read her query, because I am a CREEPER (as everyone who reads my blog already knows). And if I saw it on the flap of a book in Borders, I would be all over that book faster than I would be over a bag of gummy bears. That is pretty fast.
And, if you are interested in this sort of thing (as I am), there is an article in the ever-articulate New Yorker about Judas Iscariot (biblical). I love this kind of stuff. I mean, when Easter comes along and History Channel starts doing its reruns on the anti-Christ and the excluded books of the Bible, I am glued to the TV screen. So I have an obsession with the Bible. I'm over it. Did I tell you in junior high I started a novel about the Virgin Mary? Yeah, I never finished it. I never finished a lot of stuff in junior high.
