First of all, hey Campaigning buddies! Great to meet you. I'm still getting around to all of your blogs so forgive me if I haven't commented yet. Uh...blame the hurricane. Yes, the hurricane did it.
Fair warning: you'll get a lot of that sort of thing around here.
Anyway, Friday is usually the day I do something about etymology. That's a big part of what I do here on the blog because the origin of words fascinates me to no end. Then on Sundays, I usually talk about writing/reading/publishing. But the occasional rant might be thrown in there because the only thing I'm worse at than keeping my mouth shut is stopping my fingers from typing. And on Tuesdays, I post helpful websites for writers. Or maybe just something fun.
So, did anyone else try out the new Blogger format? I gauge how good a change is by how long it takes me to get used to it. This one was pretty fast. Seriously, I'm used to it now and I've only just finished this post.
EDIT: Okay, I take it back because now it's annoying me. It says I'm not allowed to have an ampersand in my post labels but I don't have one! Apparently, it's real problem was with the apostrophe in Writer's Platform Building Campaign. I don't know what bugs me more, that it showed the wrong symbol or that now the label is grammatically incorrect. No, wait. It's the second thing.
That's all for now : ). If you're of a mind, tell me three things in the comment section so I can get to know you:
1) Your name/pen name
2) Your favorite book
3) Your biggest fear
To be fair, I'll go first.
1) J E Fritz (My name's Jeanne, but there's a similarly named writer out there so I'm sticking to the initials)
2) HOUSE OF LEAVES by Mark Danielewski (I love a good horror story)
3) Spiders. They have too many legs.
