Pirate Monkey's Harry Potter Personality Quiz
Harry Potter Personality Quiz
by Pirate Monkeys Inc.

It's the second time I've gotten that INFP result, so who knows, it may be true. (At least it sounds right, unlike many quiz results!) As far as the character ID...well, of course I would have been happier about that before Book 7, but what the heck, it's probably fair enough.

Meanwhile, I was staring and staring at one of my online Scrabble games a few minutes ago, searching for a result that would get me at least 10 points. (As you might guess from that, I'm not at all brilliant at Scrabble, although I've been getting a bit better with all this practice - so if it's 10 points or more, I feel clever and smug about my increased Scrabble prowess. Yes, I feel smug about it even as my opponents are scoring 40 points a turn...) Finally - finally! - I spotted it: by adding 2 letters to the board, I'd make a single word that would combine to also make three other words and score me a lofty 19(!) points. I clicked and clicked - and the score came online : 5 points. What? Yes, I'd been so excited by my own brilliance that I'd only entered one of my required two letters. Thus, only one, very short word was created, earning only 5 of my 19 points... It's sad to go so quickly from smug brilliance to outraged pathetic-ness. And sadder yet, of course, to write a journal entry about it!

And since that's the most exciting thing that's happened to me today, I'll quickly move on to some links. Lots of good writing entries in the last few days! These are some of my favorites:

  • Lyda Morehouse on harsh internal critics: Part One and Part Two

  • Nalo Hopkinson on structure and on a character exercise

  • Jenny Crusie on good author websites, blogs, and internet marketing

  • Enjoy!
