My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Addendum Rule

That's a lot of notifications for one post.

Okay there was never any chance a real post was going up today since I have about five minutes that isn't earmarked for something else from about 7:30 am until about midnight. Hopefully this weekend, I'll actually be able to get a post up that isn't jazz hands...or fluff....or fluff doing jazz hands....fluffily.

So I woke up to like a gagillion notifications on yesterday's poll about books that are so much better than the movie. Apparently I've either totally achieved some new plateau of third rate blog popularity, or y'all have some pretty strong feels about adaptations. I'm guessing the latter as I am simply not that awesome.

I can't (and won't) keep doing this thing where we have weeks and months of qualifying rounds, quarterfinals, semifinals all to reach the final round of our poll. So I'm hereby announcing that these polls will not go over two semifinal rounds of ten choices each.

That means I'm taking the "top" twenty nominations.....at most. But if I can narrow it down to a single poll of eight choices, that's what I'll do.  Or at least as close as I can get it to those perimeters.

And the way I know which one is the "top"choice will be which gets the most "seconds."  (Yes, I know that technically makes them thirds and fourths...and whateverths.)

So second your faves, and we'll still have a robust poll, but no more of this months of quarterfinals crap that drags on forever.
