The OracularOrb

So I've been asking questions of Neil Gaiman's Oracular Orb through Twitter (@OracularOrb). I think I may post the answers whenever I ask it questions. This thing is better than the iChing—it's amusing and accurate.

Stacy: Why oh why do I have to go out into the freezing snow today???

OracularOrb: Let's see . . .

Let's see, indeed. I have to work (deadline Monday) and I have to go to the grocery. Not really the way I wanted to spend my day, as I'd planned to spend it writing, editing, and helping D make cookies.

I tried that after you posted it on Twitter and it is fun!

I hope you get to make cookies with D! Take care

I watched someone have a long drawn-out conversation with it, it was very bizarre!

Actually, go look at!/OracularOrb and you'll see, she's doing it again.

I wrote: @OracularOrb How can I motivate myself through hundreds of pages of revision with no end in sight (and no deadline)?

And received the response: @akaSylvia: This is not a strange thing.

Absolute truth!
