These Are A Few Of My Favorite Blogs

And NONE of them are about whiskers on kittens! How weird is that?

The first is Michael Williams’ Mythical Realism. Michael doesn’t post nearly often enough to suit me but, when he does, he says something worth saying (except when he posts about Game of Thrones; I don’t watch Game of Thrones, so ~yawn~). But OTHERWISE, he posts great stuff, like this one about faith, refuge, choices, and — always — mindfulness.

Next is Behind Closed Covers, a lovely book review site filled with personal reviews of books the reviewer chose because she thought they sounded interesting. You may or may not agree with her choices or her reviews, but I’m charmed by her openness and clarity of statements. Not a stuffy word on the entire site.

I lubs me some Byron Edgington. I read and reviewed — with as many stars as Amazon allows — his memoir, THE SKY BEHIND ME. He has a blog I follow assiduously (not a dirty word). I recommend Byron Edgington: Author, Byron’s Website. It used to be called Queequeg’s Coffin, which makes it even better!

The wonderfully named The Diesel-Electric Elephant Company by Ian Huston is one of those blogs you go to, never knowing what you’ll find. I particularly loved this post about people-watching at the hospital and on public transport.

Live Wonderstruck is my latest “discovery”, the blog of author S. M. Hutchings. It’s beautiful, and not in a happy-sappy way. In a true, honest, sometimes funny way.

My beautiful Sister from across the sea, Marion Driessen, has a blog devoted to her photos, which are stunning. Go catch yourself some Eye-Catcher. There might even be some whiskers on kittens there.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Do a Google Image search for butter. Write about the sixteenth picture.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Marian, I’m will finish the first draft this month, then a few weeks of rewrites, then we will see. I will be reaching out to several literary agents to gauge interest. Hydra is interested in the novel if I don’t make the jump up to the next level. The timing then will be up to them.

      Oh, how I howled when I got to the end and you-know-who was still with you-know-who and you-know-who couldn’t do anything about you-know-what! But, as you can tell from my own series, I like stories with a long arc as well as shorter internal arcs, so I couldn’t complain. I could, however, howl. And I did!

    A lot of people have howled and I think it’s a fair point. Each and every novel from here forward will tie up all the major plot points, with several long arc character stories continuing. Good thing I’m writing another one or there would be people with pitch forks and torches outside Castle Acree.
