Hello all! It is Wednesday yet again. Not only is it an everyday Wednesday, but the first Wednesday, which means it’s time for my posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). I’m pleased to be among those co-hosting this month’s posting. Please visit the pages of my fellow co-hosts–Jemi Fraser, L.G Keltner, TyreanMartinson, and Rachna Chhabria!
This month’s optional question is: Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write?
I write what I write because the characters and what ifs that pop into my brain to begin the writing process refuse to go away until I write them as they grew. I make decisions about tense and secondary characters to further plot, but the foundation is an non-negotiable part of the idea.
Time for some news.
Quite the whale tail.
I cannot even imagine the edge of the Milky Way. Can you? I love science!
I leave you with a song. See you back here in seven.
