As a writer bound for continual procrastination and occasional flurries of useful activity, I've discovered a couple of new online pastimes that I really enjoy. My favorite is wading through all the academic and writerly spam and advertising messages and coming across the name of an author I know among the book promotions within a general media vehicle, not of their own making. Fussy Librarian is one I check out, Awesome Indies another, and Publishers Weekly. NY Times Book Review had one of my friend Henry's books featured a couple of months back. It always brings a smile when I see a book I've beta read or an author I know mentioned, and it's happening two or three times a week now. Most of them, I've met right here. Anyone else have any favorite online pastimes -- besides posting in writing forums?
