Welcome to the November round of nervousness and insecurity. Adding in a fall month, especially the month with Thanksgiving, makes the twittering and hand wringing more special. Click the image above and take a peek. It will be quite an enjoyable peek–I promise.🙂
A ton of thanks for our November co-hosts: Joylene Nowell Butler, Jen Chandler, Mary Aalgaard, Lisa Buie Collard, Tamara Narayan, Tyrean Martinson, and Christine Rains!
The question this month: What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?
So many sarcastic comments and internet memes of a writer sitting before an over-loaded desk spring to mind. I do have quite a wicked sarcastic streak. But as this can also be a REAL question–that’s right I capitalized the entire word to give it extra meaning, and realness–I suppose I’ll be good and simply answer the question directly.
The naked truth is: seeing my thoughts come alive. Although it is eminently challenging to get the words to truly capture the entirety of what I’ve built inside my head–dang, that place is confusing–I truly love watching how a single plot idea, character, or situation can grow and evolve into something that feels real. Alive. It is in those moments, in those scenes, where I suddenly also feel at my most alive. And that, my friends, is my favorite aspect of being a writer.
Time for the news.
First up is the most messed up Wi-Fi password situation I’ve seen. That is just all kinds of wrong for those of us permanently connected to our devices.
Um … did the president of the Philippines just say he hears voices?
This week’s science news could be huge for kids and parents dealing with the devastating effects of autism. Imagine holding the key to unlocking your child’s communication abilities.
That’s it for me, folks. See you in seven.
