Week 41 - MFRW 52-week Blog Challenge Participants
-Sorry, folks, for missing last week's blog challenge! I even told my publicist on Thursday that I wouldn't forget. Well, she knows better now than to trust me when I spout nonsense like that.
Anyway, this week's blog prompt is about writing rituals and the truth behind them. I assume this is supposed to draw out participating authors' own writing rituals: what they are, why they do them, and the feelings they get from doing them. That, of course, presumes we have writing rituals.
I don't go through any little processes to get my mind in the groove or attract good fortune before I write. I don't do anything like that after I finish a manuscript or even when I publish. Perhaps some of the participating authors on this blog hop do. I have no beef with that. If it makes them feel comfortable or inspires them--and doesn't hurt anyone else in the process--then what they do doesn't bother me.
Perhaps the question ought to be do we or not have such rituals and, why so or why not. Unfortunately, I can't answer that one either.
Egad, I'm boring.
This blog is posted on the very day that I'm headed to Louisville, KY for the Imadjinn Book Fair & Expo held in conjunction with the Imaginarium at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center, October 11 - 13. I participated in the event back in 2017, and it was a bust. However, I heard that the event has really grown and is something quite special. So, I go with high hopes and every intention of hitting the Jim Beam store. (I'm out of bourbon.)
Enter the Imaginarium and stop by my table to chat (and maybe buy a book or three). Admission to the event is open and free to the public. There's plenty of (free) onsite parking. And, if you get hungry, there are some restaurants nearby.
