This week, around the web:

Nathan Bransford talks about the danger of getting too carried away with dreams of wild success and Oprah stickers for one’s (yet unpublished) books. Is it good to dream and aspire? Yes. 

Is it bad to let those dreams turn into expectations, that later, turn you bitter and craven and into a Dark Lord of the Sith. Probably. (No really, he says that. Go see for yourself.) 

John Scalzi is back from his blogging hiatus and is in fine form today, talking about writing and finding the time to do so. Excellent advice, but take a peek at the comments. One very astute commenter (#16 to be precise) talks about energy management vs. time management. Actually, many of the comments contain excellent advice. Have a look.
