HOW TO: open a new text post and type letters a-z into the tags and take your favorite tag it suggests and post it out of context. this only works if you use tags as obsessive conversational add-ons like me, and if your computer saves the tags you’ve used before.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
The Pandora Plague: A Posthumous Memoir of John H. Watson, M.D. The theft of a pocket-watch and the appearance of a mysterious, locked strongbox bring famed magician Harry Houdini together with consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, in a case that rocks Britain to its core. When the magician is blackmailed into besting the box’s lock, Holmes and Houdini expose a plot against the Crown itself. In the tradition of Nicholas Meyer’s bestseller, “The 7% Solution,” Lee Matthias recreates Arthur Conan Doyle’s magnificent style and characters in “The Pandora Plague,” a period feast, bursting with the raucous energy of a world throwing off the romanticism of the Victorian Age for the power and dangerous potential of science, new philosophies, and the machine. Sherlock Holmes is at his peak. The brash, young Houdini challenges all who stand in his way. And Watson, Holmes’s chronicler and friend, returns us to a time when the gas was always lit, the Persian slipper always filled with shag, and the game was, once again, and at long last…afoot. Take Action and Get it immediately! …
“It’s so important to start writing, because then the process never, ever ends. Finding your voice isn’t the last stage, just another stage along the way. You reach the top of that mountain, only to see a whole bloody, endless range of mountains waiting beyond. You’ve a million more things to reach for, a million more variations on your voice to articulate. Because your writing always lacks something. Mine does, Moffat’s does, even Paul Abbot’s does, and that’s why we spend the rest of our lives, still typing away in the dark, trying to get better. Until we die.”—
One day society will fall, and the only thing left will be our legacies of shipping history, Sci Fi, and musicals. It will be found by the descendants of man, and it will paint their idea of the past. Filled with sex and bromance. As it should be.
