"I try to leave out the parts that people skip."  
Writing Advice From Awesome Authors. Usually I'm kinda anti-writing-advice because they usually contain so many thou-shalt-nots, but this is a numbered list on pretty black and white portraits. You probably need this today.

Edited to add:

Fandom update! Should probably tell you that Netflix put the Tok'ra'thon on hiatus until they stick sgwun back on instant play or I get up the will to locate the correct DVDs, plug in the DVD player, and - why do you have to make this so hard, Netflix?

I am a great believer in number 22, Saul Bellow's: You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.

If it's important enough to force me out of my warm bed on a cold night it's going to be usable.

I totally want to agree with this except in my experience what I get up to write in the middle of the night is sort of like what I would write when really stoned - it sounds UNBELIEVABLY BRILLIANT at the time and then I'm like, seriously, I wasted an hour of sleep to misspell my way through Jack O'Neill finds the meaning of life in a seven-layer burrito?

The Chekov is fantastic.

And I feel your pain. I've got all manner of shows--X-Files, for example, and SVU--in my Netflix streaming queue!

Seriously, my life satisfaction in general has taken a hit since they removed the Stargates without warning. I keep wanting to go onto Netflix and check if they've had a change of heart but then I feel like the desperate ex-girlfriend checking her phone every two seconds.
