A good kind of busy

I have a lot of work to do. I was going to do a lot of it tonight. But my sister and her husband’s work schedules happened to overlap an hour or so, and I got recruited to babysit.

It’s worth putting off the work.

Still, I’ve got a column due tomorrow, I’ve got reviews I should have done, and I’ve gotta get more work done on The Light Man.

Also, because I’m a stupid, stupid person and a glutton for punishment, I’ve started a Tumblr account. I’m the sort of person who always wants to try out new gadgets, new technology, and new ways to communicate, but I’ve already got a couple of blogs, a Facebook account, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn… what was I going to use Tumblr for that I wasn’t doing already?

A few days ago, an idea occurred to me. I’ll use Tumblr for “story bursts.” A Story Burst can be many things: my thoughts about a character or property I don’t own, random idea chunks that I may or may not want to play with later or also pieces of art that I find inspirational, exciting, or just plain cool. Plus, I’m going to use it when I’m writing to post the occasional fun quote or line from my work-in-progress. If you don’t want to get a Tumblr, I don’t blame you. You won’t have to get one to see this. I’ve got it set up to automatically post anything from Tumblr to Twitter and Facebook. You follow me there, you’ll see what I post on Tumblr.

And if you’ve got a Tumblr of your own, I’d appreciate a follow. I’m new there.
