Welcome to one and all to another Mind Sieve round of insanity! Hope you find something fun or at least useful in this mess! 🙂

Fan Fun

If you’re an NCIS fan, you heard Dinozzo talk about his Bucket List. Michael Weatherly shared the whole thing with the fans here. It’s so Tony! Heh heh heh.

Chuck (NSFW) Wendig shared his Recipe for Sinner’s Stew (Contains coffee, beer, and whiskey! oh my!) Sounds quite nice.

Hunger Games movie preview. I’ve not read the books but know a lot of people who love them. Preview is definitely titillating, that’s for sure. 🙂 And I love the young man playing the male counterpart. Awesome actor.

Ellie Ann is doing a series of blogs on What I Want To Be When I Grow Up – First up A Spook. And she interviews one to get the real skinny. Fascinating.

Artist MarieMJS painted this to encourage the writers for the British series “Sherlock” to write Mark Sheppard into the cast. I totally agree! Would be a super blast! Here is a Watson and Sheppard match.

Dr Who Movie on the Way! I’m both excited and nervous about this development! But still, Dr Who on the BIG SCREEN! Woot!

Best For Film has found out that those Muppet people also have a penchant for the Twilight films. Here’s one of the three posters. You can find all three here. Too funny!

Steven Popkis has a cool discussion on Signs of Life. Basically, how do you really know if there’s life on a planet.

Gene Lempp’s Designing from Bones tackles Signalling Viewpoints this week! (I’m thinking another worls where electricity doesn’t work so towers are manned by telepaths where the next tower right at the edge of their range – mind to mind communication. heh heh.)

Movie Preview for Mirror Mirror. Looks like it will be a blast! Not your typical Snow White story, that’s for sure. lol.

New preview for Disnety Pixar’s Brave. Looking forward to it!

Author Platform/Social Media

Kristen Lamb warns – Beware the Social Media Snuggie! One Size Does Not Fit All!

Are Libraries Good for Authors? A post by Kristin Laughtin. (People actually think of libraries as book pirates?!?!?)

Well, a week of two ago, I had articles here about joining Klout. This week, I have one about DeKoutifying by John Scalzi. Heh heh. (I don’t do any of the perks stuff or eagle eye my score, so…shrug) What will you decide?

Rachelle Gardner gives advice on What NOT to Blog About. And she’s totally correct. The internet NEVER forgets!

Why Writers Need a Platform by Kristen Lamb.

Sharla Rae tells us Why Some Blogs Make Me Cranky. (And I totally agree. A lot of this stuff makes me cranky too! Heh heh. But then, that’s why I am your Mind Sieve. Bwahahahaha!)

Writing Advice

Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole Of The Law – awesome discussion by Chuck (NSFW) Wendig and the weirdness we as writers get mired in. Go – Read – Be Free!

More from Chuck (NSFW) Wendig as in 25 Reasons Readers Will Keep Reading Your Story.

Does Age Matter For Writers? Question answered by Rachelle Gardner. (I know an author that didn’t publish till her 80’s and she’s still kicking buns! Booyah!)

From Larry at Storyfix.com The Are of Receiving Criticism. Some very good points in this! All peeps are not made the same with critiquing skills.

Foreshadowing: How A Sore Thumb Can Prepare You For A Brutal Beating by Roz Morris. Good stuff!

Okay, the eyeballs are screaming. Time for me to stop. This should keep you lot busy for a while anyways. Bwahahahahaha!

Till next time!
