A Rose Is My Imperfect, Colossal Vanity #FridayRecommends

Rose I’ve signed up to be part of the April A-to-Z Blogging Challenge again this year, so I’ll be discovering lots of new blogs, and I’ll be visited by folks visiting me for the first time. When those folks comment, I usually follow them back to their blogs and see what’s happening there.

One of those folks has already snagged me: Shilpa Garg, of “The Pink City” of India. Her web site, A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose!, is a feast of micro fiction, book reviews (of books you might not run across in America without Shilpa’s point you in the right direction), and personal observations.

Following Shilpa in India led me to “Sanch” in Australia, because that’s how the World-Wide Web works. If your name has ever given you trouble, read this post on Living My Imperfect Life and you’ll call up your parents and say thank you. Sanch has a perfectly good name, you understand, it’s just … complicated.

Want to see some colossal stuff? Visit This Is Colossal for articles like this one about a mummy inside a statue of Buddha. This, and much, much more.

You know what it’s like to lose a companion animal. Jason Sizemore just lost one, and has written a wonderful short article encapsulating the animal/human bond on his site, A Writer’s Vanity.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write something with a rose, a difficult name, a mummy, and a cat.


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.
