Welcome readers, writers, authors, and bloggers!
Aviation History Month – did you know that bumblebees have been spotted above
18 thousand feet? While my meager talent consists mostly of creating on, rather
than with paper, I understand that an
American team of two holds the record for Paper Airplane flying distance (226
feet), the record for “time aloft” (27.9 seconds) was set in 2010 by (not
surprisingly) the chairman of the Japan Origami Airplane Association ;-)
Is it any wonder
that International Stress Awareness Day is celebrated the day after Election
Day? No matter, we can choose to celebrate National Candy Day while composing
the next 2 – 3 thousand words in honor of National Novel Writing Month!
For the eleventh time this year, it’s the First Wednesday of the month when we celebrate IWSG Day, in the form of a blog hop featuring all of the members of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Founded by Alex Cavanaugh and fostered by like-minded associates, IWSG is a place to share the fabulous views and exciting news that occurs along our fascinating writing journeys. Pull up a chair and join us!
November 4 question - 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 love these
quotes, don’t you as well?
In answer to
Writers write what often can’t be
said without interruption.
In a writer’s world, words are shared
as dinner mints; confections crafted with hope and baked with resolve to melt a
heart or dip a mind into something uniquely created by the writer – I liken
satisfied readers to delighted eaters as the cook, looking on, beams from the
everyone. Oh! And, Happy Thanksgiving!
