Recently on:
  • I like my bed at least 50% more, now that I changed the direction on some of the supporting wheels, keeping it mostly in one place.
  • Ain't no party like a publishing party.
  • Jeter's speech closing Yankee Stadium may have been this generation's Luckiest Man speech. Athletes should give more speeches. (Not really)
And, just for fun, this is kinda awesome and creative.

Jennifer Banash has created microblogs on Twitter for three of the characters in [her Young Adult novel], Madison, Casey, and Drew. The characters make reference to the real world—"read the interview with the director of American Teen in the Times this morning"—as well as their own exploits.

I also just heard last night, at a publishing party, that the author of the upcoming book Captain Freedom, G. Xavier Robillard, has created a network of in-character blogs for personalities from his book, including one written by Captain Freedom himself, and one which is a general site for his nemeses, The International Society of Supervillians.

I like this trend, and thank Stephen Colbert for introducing it to us. Stephen Colbert: is there anything he can't do?
