Well, hello! I’m planning a fun new giveaway for next week that will involve Questions and Prizes. I’m also writing like fury (The Agency 3: The Traitor and the Tunnel), which means that this week instead of a thoughtful, long-cogitated, carefully written short essay in response to an FAQ, I’m bringing you a list of some of my favourite sites. Yes, this is a cheat – and a frivolous one, at that.
This is how I fritter away time on the internet at the moment:
India Knight’s Posterous: lovely, lovely things, curated for you by the Sunday Times journalist.
Mustaches of the Nineteenth Century: um, self-explanatory. But curiously addictive.
The Catastrophizer: my friend Sarah Sweet, on a soapbox.
Making it Lovely: again, self-explanatory. It helps if you like pink, brown, and hand-crafted things.
The Beat that My Heart Skipped: terrific name, and new to me. We shall see how we get on.
You’ll notice a preponderance of design stuff, and nothing at all book-related. I’ll compile a list of great writing and publishing blogs another day. In the meantime, I hope I’ve persuaded you to part happily with another precious quarter-hour you’ll never get back. Hah!
