Casting Call

I honestly have no idea what to write about this week. Currently, I'm finishing and polishing my stable of short stories before I start making a concerted effort at my novel, and therefore starting my "first-novel-documentary" experiment.

So, I don't want to randomly start pontificating again about random subjects related to writing. So instead, I'm going to ask you fine folks what I should randomly pontificate about. Or would it no longer be random, then?

Anyway, please please please comment and let me know what y'all want me to talk about. New poll question, btw. Weigh in.

"This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."


May the Force be with you,



  1. I'm curious about you and here are just a few q's...
    When did you realize you were a writer?
    Who mentored you?
    What writers have most influenced you?
    What would you like your writing to accomplish?

  2. Ditto the above. And ... Do you think the book (as opposed to the blog, the film, the whatever media you might name today) is as important to "your generation" as it is to mine? I'm interested in the perspective of one who has grown up in this age of technology.

    PS: I still adore the concept of spectral butterflies :) That was very touching!

  3. Very interesting, Gayle and Candice! I can now do a "bio" blog, and not have it sound egotistical ;). I'll have a new post up answering your q's posthaste.

    P.S. -- Thanks, Candice! I look forward to putting that story up for critique for the first meeting of September :)
