“I would speak to one manager, and they would be like, ‘Hold on a second, I have to ask to this other manager if we’re going to use you,’  finally someone picked up and would say, ‘Yes, we are using you,’ or, ‘No, we’re not going to use you.’”

Patrick Stewart And Ian McKellen Are Having The Most Fun In New York City 
A reminder of how much fun you can have in this city when you’re with your best pal.

This is the best thing I’ve seen today. I want this to be set to a musical montage. And there should be skipping. Lots of skipping. View in High-Res

    Write long, write medium, write short. Loretta Lopez, editor of the best teen writing 2013, begins her introduction to the book urging people to mind your attention spans in our fast-twitch technology world. True. But if you’re a writer, do tweet. 140 characters is a great drill.

    Any writer needs to be able to communicate a clear message. Twitter forces you to tell people who, what, why and why to care. If you don’t, you won’t have any followers. So write long, write medium, write short. But keep writing.

    — 

    Brian Lehrer’s advice to young writers from a recent Scholastic event. Works for old writers too. See the full remarks here.
