Edwards Asks: Would You Rather Change the World or Change Yourself?

Well, I gave up on NanoWrimo... got farther than last year. Haven't been writing much of anything at the moment. Don't know if you guys saw this.

I think it would … Continue reading Jennifer Asks: What One Currently Living Writer Would You Most Like to Have Lunch, A Beer, or A Coffee With?
(The following is a continuation of this post) Well, G. Edward, this sounds like some kind of horrifying Dystopian Nightmare scenario, in which case I suppose the genre I would choose would be whatever subject or information would help me survive the longest. But then on the other hand, would I even want to live in … Continue reading G. Edward Asks: If You Could Read Only Genre for Your Remaining Days Which Would It Be?

But please feel free to list more than one." Upon reading this, I had a question of my own, namely-- What in … Continue reading Jennifer Asks: What is Your Culture Crush?
(The following is a continuation of this post) Fate or Free Will? I suppose this depends on what G. Edward means by fate in this question. It is entirely possible to believe in both--they are not necessary mutually exclusive. Fate, in the traditional sense, merely indicates that the consequences of our choices will lead to … Continue reading G. Edward Asks: Fate or Free Will?
The Teletubbies shall know my wrath. Hello Presumed-Humans-- I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Oh boy, evidently I have received this nomination twice, from both G.E.
