Happy August! We’re nearing summer’s end. It’s not fall yet, but we’re getting closer. I may be part of the group cheering fall’s beginning. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Today is about the Insecure Writer’s Support Group posting, and news–I can’t forget the news.
The optional question is: When you set out to write a story, do you try to be more original or do you try to give readers what they want?
For me it’s not either or. It’s all about the timing. The idea has to come first, but during revision, managing the story becomes very important. If I do my job correctly, both end up addressed throughout the numerous drafts it takes to finish.
Time for some news. Mr. Happy is so ugly he’s cute.
In science news, we’re truly living in a brave new world. Artificial intelligence (AI) has discovered alternative physics. If we ever encounter another species, will they have discovered the same physical laws we did, or will they have discovered different ones? The AI discovery points to the possibility that we have found just one physical path. Science is so cool!
I leave you with a song. Enjoy and I’ll see you in seven.
