It's even worse than it appears.
My under-the-weatherness continues. Sleeping a lot, not eating much, drinking lots of water. A busy week coming up. It would be nice if this virus-like thing were to go away. And this is weird because I thought we weren't supposed to get virus-like things. Still maybe it's something I ate? Oy. Thanks for all the get well messages. #
An easy way to make your writing better. Write the first draft as you think of the ideas. Then go back and delete all the connectives, all the things words you put in while your mind plotted out plots where you're going to take the writing next. And, delete every instance of the word very. Only leave the ones it where it's absolutely necessary to convey the veryness of the idea. Usually it adds nothing to the writing. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
