Novelist error messages.
Um. Yes. These.
In my experience, writers tend to be really good at the inside of their own heads and imaginary people, and a lot less good at the stuff going on outside, which means that quite often if you flirt with us we will completely fail to notice, leaving everybody involved slightly uncomfortable and more than slightly unlaid.
So I would suggest that any attempted seduction of a writer would probably go a great deal easier for all parties if you sent them a cheerful note saying “YOU ARE INVITED TO A SEDUCTION: Please come to dinner on Friday Night. Wear the kind of clothes you would like to be seduced in.”
And alcohol may help, too. Or kissing. Many writers figure out that they’re being seduced or flirted with if someone is actually kissing them.

Reblogged for truth. Apparently half the planet knew that scottlynch78 and I were destined to become a couple about six months before we had any clue.
Correction: Because of an error in the Forbes report on Beck’s speech, this story originally misidentified which cable news network newsroom he described as a “Pit of Despair” in his speech. It was CNN not Fox News.
Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities. My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions, by Guillermo Del Toro with Marc Zicree, Harper Design, 2013. Cover art and illustrations by Guillermo del Toro, info: harpercollins.com. Gallery: deltorofilms.com.
"Over the last two decades, writer-director Guillermo del Toro has mapped out a territory in the popular imagination that is uniquely his own, astonishing audiences with Cronos, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and a host of other films and creative endeavors. Now, for the first time, del Toro reveals the inspirations behind his signature artistic motifs, sharing the contents of his personal notebooks, collections, and other obsessions. The result is a startling, intimate glimpse into the life and mind of one of the world’s most creative visionaries. Complete with running commentary, interview text, and annotations that contextualize the ample visual material, this deluxe compendium is every bit as inspired as del Toro is himself. Contains a foreword by James Cameron, an afterword by Tom Cruise, and contributions from other luminaries, including Neil Gaiman and John Landis, among others."

Despite the GOP temper tantrum currently shutting down the government and related annexes, the Affordable Care Act is still the law of the land. If you’ve been making do without health insurance (or overpaying for a crap policy), the marketplace is now open. Go, take a look. The life you save (and medically-caused bankruptcy you prevent) may be your own.
