Quote of the week

Almost a mocking tone here, one might say:

Well played, sir.

    Slow-ly, Mr. Martin. Slow-ly.

    Okay, so that’s where the hashtag-free Mockingbird sequel titles came from that I saw on Twitter.

    I still prefer “Kill Mockingbird, Vol. II.”

    Kudos. I didn’t catch the error, although I might be more likely to after I finish the book I just started reading. It’s “The Writer’s Art” by James J. Kilpatrick. I used to love reading his columns. After I read his explanation of the proper usage of “affect” and “effect”, I was always able to spot any misuse of them.

    I figure I should try to improve my writing. Fillyjonk is watching.

    Are we going to kill the mockingbird slowly this time?

    The more I watch of the game of thrones, the more I think he has just taken actual history, changed the characters names, and maybe shuffled some of events around. That is probably NOT what he has done, but every time something really rotten happens on that show I am reminded of how horrible real people were. Er, are.

    Lee finished her book on the first bounce, though.
