Audible is giving away free audiobooks for Thanksgiving, including METAtropolis.

20090406 012A thousand words last night, and 330 so far this morning. I'm slogging through the 113 pages of this book I do have written, putting things in a logical order, fixing my line of direction, and amending my "think of this later" notes to actual content. It's necessary work for the book to advance, and it feel like progress. When I'm done, the book may have a foundation, which is sort of important for one to be able to build a structure on top.

Unfortunately, at this point, I am bogged down trying to think of a coinage that means, roughly, "fanatical loyalty to an ideological meme in the face of conclusive evidence to the contrary." You know, like Oxfordians. Or birthers. Or white supremacists. Or young Earth creationists. Like that.

And the right turn of phrase is just not coming to me.

Yeah, I expect this book is going to piss some people off. But then, what doesn't?

In the meantime, here, have a photo of a cup of tea.
