Out in the blogosphere...

Melly over at All Kinds of Writing brings up a good question. Is there such a thing as evil? Personally, I believe all characters, good or bad, have some motivation to behave as they do. We may not agree with the behavior, but at least we should understand it.

Uncle Pepek has a thought-provoking picture and poem on her blog. What if Never should come again?

Michelle Rowen guest blogs about Doubt Weasels over at Fog City Divas.

Bonnie Staring talks about being married to your words. Do you get defensive when editors edit your work? How far will you go to keep your perfect prose?

Darren brings up an interesting point over at it must be tuesday. Fictitious blogs. Wouldn’t books like Bridget Jones’s Diary and Adrian Mole have made great blogs? In fact, how do we know anything posted on blogs is true?

Well, it’s time for a Canadian long weekend. Canada day. I’m off to Ottawa with DH to visit with family and friends. Hope everyone has a great weekend/long weekend as the case may be!!

Happy Canada Day! (My youngest son's best friend is Canadian). BTW, I'm a GIRL! My Uncle Pepek is a series of poems I wrote for a chapbook about a fictional immigrant uncle, only one of which has been published, but I think its my best stuff! I am not giving up on it!

How do you celebrate Canada Day? A barbeque in the back yard, fireworks, that sort of thing? Do you give each other presents? Does Santa Canuk come down your chimney? or what?

Enjoy your Canada Day?

As for being defensive with editors, not really. Usually I'm too close to the work to see the flaws, so if I trust their judgment, I'll happily make changes. They're usually right. :)
