While it’s nice to see folks out there giving this book five stars, and in some cases even reviewing it, I’ll admit that I’m kinda puzzled.

After thinking it over for a while, I’ve realized there’s only one explanation for this:

Time travelers love my books.

This is strangely reassuring, as it lets me know that, eventually, I do finish my revisions, and the book turns out good enough so that I still have a following out there in the big ball of wibbly-wobbly…. timey-wimey…. stuff that I like to think of as the future.

I would also like to say, future readers, that I appreciate your taking time to read and review my books. It’s really flattering knowing that even with time-travel technology at your disposal, you’d rather read my stuff and mention it here on goodreads, rather than, say, hunt dinosaurs, get drunk with da Vinci, or pants Hitler.

Secondly, I’d like to say if you’re The Doctor, and you’re reading this, I would make an excellent traveling companion. I know you normally tend to hang out with pretty young women and robot dogs. And honestly? I respect that.

Still, I bring certain things to the table. Humor, witty banter, and a beard that will allow me to blend in seamlessly with any pre-industrial Germanic culture. I’m also an excellent kisser and play a mean game of Settlers of Catan.

Just throwing it out there.

Lastly, if any of you happen to have a digital copy of the book you’d like to e-mail me, I’d really appreciate it. I’d love to see the five-star version of the book, because right now, the one I’m toiling away at is about a three an a half-in my opinion. It would save me a lot of work if I could just skip to the end and publish it.

Sincerely yours,

pat

This is quite interesting. It would be so neat to see other people’s creative processes like this or even watch our own come to life.

The Tiny Project   |   http://tiny-project.com

The Tiny Project is Alex Lisefski's attempt to live a simpler, more conscious, debt-free life, and in doing so helping to set and example and educate the community about alternative, affordable, more sustainable ways of living.

The tiny house movement is rapidly gaining popularity in the US and elsewhere around the world. Though no two tiny homes are identical, they share many core principles, and of course, they are all quite tiny! Though a tiny house can be built on a foundation, many people choose to build on a flatbed trailer, in order to make the house mobile, and to avoid minimum square footage requirements that most municipalities have in place for permanent structures.

Building on a trailer means the house is considered more like an RV, and does not need to adhere to the same permits, codes, and rules associated with building a normal home. The trick with trying to live full-time in a pseudo-RV is where to park it.

People Who Buy Telescopes: What is Mine {And His and Hers and Yours}

peoplewhobuytelescopes:

Home is one of those words-one of the words that represents something intangible. We’ve tried to pair the word with a building: home is where we go after a long day out in the big, bad world. False. Home is not a building-the building is a house. It’s also commonly misperceived that home is…

Brilliant. It reminds me of when I was in stage production and on our last day of one of our shows, Canaletti (our director) said “welcome home.” I felt so at home there and yet I feel so at home here, in the family I have found myself in almost unexpectedly. Even still, my heart longs for the home that is deeper within my memory, the home where people I love and who love me wait. Maybe it is selfish to think they wait because I know their lives continue on without me, but in my mind, those that anticipate my return with joy in their hearts at least wait for the time when we are reunited. They do not sit like an obedient dog at the foot of the stairs, but they do wait.
