Random things on my mind today:
- Who knew hope had a colour? For me, it seems it does: the pale green haze of fresh growth on deciduous trees. Yes, it really is spring! Finally!
- I always expect bald eagles to have a bigger, scarier voice than they do. But no–they chirp.
- Is a book art in the same way poetry or a painting is art? And if so, should it be judged and reviewed, or just experienced?
- Despite what Marilyn Monroe may have believed, I think a piano is a girl’s best friend. Good for what ails you. (Perhaps this is not a belief as widely held as the diamonds version, but it’s true for me, at least.)
- I’m cheering for a hockey team I would normally NEVER cheer for, all because of one player — a backup goalie from small-town Saskatchewan, thrust into starting-goalie position in the playoffs. Which tells you how important characterization is when you’re writing — give me a sympathetic character I can identify with in some way, and I’ll follow him anywhere. (You knew there’d be a writing analogy in this list somewhere, right? LOL)
