Well, here we are again… it’s Weekly Update time!!!
This past week we finished up the Heroic Archetype series in the Writers’ Bistro group. If you followed along, you know we made our way through 16 male and female character archetypes… and may have learned a little about our own characters, and ourselves, in the process. If you didn’t read along, head on over to the Writers’ Bistro group and scroll back through. And if you aren’t already a member, join up here: www.facebook.com/groups/thewritersbistro
Speaking of Bistro, this Wednesday we are celebrating the 1st Anniversary for our monthly Live Write. A great group of writers are going to be joining us, and we hope you will, too. One picture… multiple genres… endless possibilities!!! Watch my Author Page for the event link this week and be there on Wednesday evening starting at 7PM.
In books news, RAZOR’S EDGE is now available for pre-order. You can get the book on multiple e-book platforms, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and Kobo… just follow this universal link and click on your preferred source: www.books2read.com/RazorsEdge
And now to close… a little thought for the week, and beyond: Every day, we see things we don’t like… encounter attitudes, beliefs, worldviews and opinions, that we just…don’t…LIKE. And you know what? That’s okay. We have the right to dislike or feel indifferent to ANYTHING… people, things, places, ideas, beliefs… There is nothing wrong with disliking or feeling indifferent… Not liking big girls doesn’t make you sizeist… not liking M/M romance doesn’t make you a bigot… neither does not liking Christian fiction, or a particular sexual orientation or race… None of that makes you a bad person, and it’s wrong for other people to label you and mistreat you if you don’t like something. However, what IS wrong is when those feelings of dislike or indifference cause us to be cruel and unfair to other people. If you are tactless, insensitive, rude, mean, cruel, or bully people because of who they are, what they are, or what they think, that is wrong. It’s too easy, in this day and age, to become an angry mob, and no matter how righteous your cause may be, being an angry mob isn’t proactive… It doesn’t move us forward. So, my thought for the week is… be measured in your speech… be responsible, not just for not saying tactless, nasty stuff, but also for not retaliating against it in a way that causes more problem than not. Be an example of kindness, always, especially when you think they don’t deserve it.
That’s all for this week, folks… Peace, Love & Muchness to you all!!!
