Forget nuclear fallout in North Vietnam. The bomb dropped last night when Jeffrey won this season’s Project Runway.

NaNoWriMo discussions continue apace. Over at Risky Regencies, Elena Greene is ready to take the plunge (with encouragement from WU) as is Nienke and Melly . . . . Naomi Novik’s dragon-laced Napoleonic novels will be brought to the big screen by Peter Jackson! (h/t Jason Pinter) . . . . over at Slushpile, venom is directed at ‘exclusives’ and the eternity it takes for some pubs to get around to rejection . . . . Sarah over at Confessions has the latest deals in crime fiction. Will Superhero sleuths be a new trend? . . . . Evil Editor is being eee-vil again, but this query needed help . . . . the October horoscopes for writers are out, and more retrograding of planets is in the forecast . . . . Alphabet Girls have a really nice post about writing stories no one seems to want right now . . . . read about when blockbusters fizzle despite insane promotional budgets, courtesy of GalleyCat (h/t Booksquare).

Write on, friends.
