I dread to think how many millions of words I've typed over the last three decades.

I also dread to think how much faster I could've typed them if I hadn't used two clumsy forefingers to type them all.

Authors: do you touch type or are you a ham-fisted oaf?

Touch type. Learned in junior high. Not real fast--clumsy to begin with, and these days I have some nerve damage to the last 2 fingers of my right hand. But it gets the job done.

First draft in longhand, where slow is an advantage because less crap comes out.

True. Seems too obvious to need saying, but a lot of things that seem that way aren't.

Protip: never ever have five books coming out in the same year

I !ived through it once or twice, but I had serious OCD. I couldn't not write.

I'm sorta--sorta, mind you--over that now.

For the first time, astronomers say they have discovered an exoplanet by mapping the auroras of its host star, opening a new chapter in the quest to map the galactic menagerie of unseen worlds.

“The US Constitution is famously short—a mere 7,591 words, including its 27 amendments. That makes it all the more remarkable that 110 of those words have been, in effect, lost to the ages.

We need these lost words back, urgently.”
