The Austinist interviews Austin sci-fi and fantasy authors about their experience with Ray Bradbury's work. Then Laura Lee Nutt continues with her chapter by chapter commenting/read along series with--Of Blood and Honey part three. SFSignal pulled together a really cool special round table discussion (like they do) with Jeremy Lassen of NightShadeBooks, Elizabeth Bear, Bradley P. Beaulieu, Charles Stross, and Rob Ziegler. Definitely worth a read. Made me think and I'd blither about that but I've done enough of that for one day. (I've a manuscript to finish!) I do want to talk about it later this week, along with a post about psychological boundaries. Here's this interesting article which discusses creativity and madness. And lastly, here's a positive way to make that inner critic shut the hell up with kindness. I can't promise that it isn't fattening or sugar free, though.
