I’m not sure why this post warranted a Roar in its title, but it did. So there!
So, I had an unexpected hiatus. I flew out to Utah last Wednesday for to visit my sister (am I the only person who made that “for + infinitive” construction when immersed in a Romance language? It’s possible…). All was going smoothly, though I didn’t have a ton of time for posting and commenting. Then Mr. Atkins drove out on for a big bike race and from Friday morning to yesterday morning, I had no computer access. Just email via his smart phone. So yeah! That’s why I was not doing the blogging/commenting thang. Mr. Atkins rode from Logan, Utah, to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for his race. Yeah, that’s 206 miles in one day. He’s crazy (but he married me, so we all knew that!). Then he got super dehydrated, so I had to take him to the hospital on Saturday night after the race. It was fun times, lemme tell ya! But we all good now. He did well in the race and we’re back home in Denver.
So yes! RTW! Lemme slap that badge on here:
Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.This Week’s Topic:What themes, settings, motifs, scenes, or other elements do you find recurring in your work?
What about you? Do your characters have a penchant for shrugging their shoulders after being kissed unexpectedly by an arrogant, yet kind boy, while “Separate Ways” plays in the background? No? I’m the only one? Weird.
