And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
— Sylvia Plath
You people outdid yourselves this week, both those of you who submitted weblog entries and those of you who wrote them. I'm actually at a loss for words after all the great reading I've done this morning, so I hand this roundup over to you to read, comment on (let the authors know you care!), and enjoy.
Also, I COMMAND YOU TO PIMP OUT YOUR OWN STUFF IN THE COMMENTS. Ahem. I mean: you are welcome to share of your talents by leaving a url to a weblog entry of your own in the comments. Like we all learned in kindergarten, sharing is good.
Also, there is a live discussion of today's Five Star Friday tonight at 10 p.m. CST hosted by Onlyaman. Check it out.
