*What is your writing routine/ritual like?
Every night before I go to bed, I write a blog post for the next morning. On nights that I'm grumpy or tired or both, the post for the following day sucks.

Getting stuck means that I have to spend hours combing the Interwebs for fascinating stories that I can give my own pithy spin to.

*What is your favorite sentence that you wrote this year?

*Do you know any good jokes?
No. I know some really bad ones, though.
