I've been doing a lot of AIMing lately.
k: (AOL Instant Messenger-ing ).
k: You initiate a chat with someone,
k: and then each of you type at each other,
k: a line sent at a time.
k: I've been finding that writing pattern
k: creeping into some of my other writing
k: with clipped sentences,
k: a line per thought to keep them interested,
k: and commas to indicate more is coming.
Slate.com has a diary of a firefighter. You really have to respect firemen, there lives are such a blend of danger and boredom, as the journal entries explain. And harsh practical jokes. (via Spike Report)
