Since posting Pause, I have had an entry every day. Blogging has become a compulsion to me. Why? There are days that I don't have time to write on the novel, but I still want to write. I write, therefor I blog. With that in mind, I have a few links to share.
The Laptop Giveaway Contest is still open. Closing is March 15th at 11:59PM CDT. In 500 words or less convince me why you, your friend, your relative, your child(ren) need this. You just can't be related to me by blood or marriage.
If you want to read a review of the OLPC laptop or would like to get a laptop for under $300, follow this link to Virtual Hosting Blog. They kindly contacted me with the review. Know that for which you are competing. (Oh, that formal, grammatically correct sentence isn't off-putting, is it?)
Did you know there are three dwarf planets? One is Pluto, which those of us older than the age of 11 have always thought of as a full-fledged planet. The other two are Ceres and Eris. Gear up your brain to forget that mnemonic of My very excellent mother just served us nine pizzas to know the order of the planets. Instead, begin using this winning entry, My Very Exciting Magic Carpet Just Sailed Under Nine Palace Elephants. Cool, right? Created by 4th grader Maryn Smith. CNN.com has the story.
