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.)

But really–don’t go there. You will lose many hours of your life.
Okay, I warned you.
