Writing Nowadays–Psst! Want Some Story Ideas, Comrade?

Terribly sorry.  I usually write about the business side of writing on Mondays, but my house is in a bit of turmoil.  You see, tomorrow I’m taking my oldest son to Ukraine to visit his birth family.  You can probably imagine the rushing about and arranging.

As a result, I don’t have the inspiration to come up with my usual bit of writerly wisdom.  However, in honor of our trip, I present you with this warning:

Do not visit this site!

Seriously.  I’m warning you.  Don’t go here:


Click on that link, and POOF!  You will lose an hour, maybe two, of your life, and probably come away with four or five story ideas.  Or even a dozen.

They say America is a fascinating place?  Huh.  It has nothing on Russia and Ukraine, comrades.

(90% of the site is safe for work, but occasional NSFW stuff shows up.)

My favorites:

The begging cat: http://englishrussia.com/index.php/2009/03/17/russian-begging-cat/

The old lady’s house: http://englishrussia.com/index.php/2008/05/07/old-ladys-house/

The living statues contest: http://englishrussia.com/index.php/2009/05/04/russian-living-statues-contest/

But really–don’t go there.  You will lose many hours of your life.

Okay, I warned you.
