I’ve come across some really nifty sites this week.
One of the newer members of the Southern Indiana Writers Group, Brett Sanders, has a beautifully thoughtful blog with the subtitle “Truth is often concealed beneath the surface of an absurdity.” So far, I haven’t read anything absurd, but much that’s mentally stimulating and artistically inspiring.

New followers of this blog, Jess and Brandon, have a nifty travel blog called Watch Me Wander with lovely pictures and lots of sound advice. I love their philosophy: “We travel to experience the world. Not to check things off a list.” This post, How To Meet Friends When Traveling, has some good pointers about friendship at all times and all places toward the end of it.
Finally, Nancy J. Cohen’s Nancy’s Notes From Florida is the kind of author’s site/blog that professionals reference in showing people what such a site/blog should be.

In this post, she tells you how to approach bloggers about their featuring your book.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go wash Munchkin’s feet. He thinks he can eat with his hands, and he isn’t very good at it.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Go to one of those quote places and make a meme out of a quote you like, from your work, someone else’s, or that you’ve heard.
