It’s Finally That Day Again…

How’s your week been so far? Mine’s been great–trying to get through a developmental edit (the editing equivalent of heavy machinery–like using a backhoe instead of broom and dustpan). Although, this edit’s lighter, so it’s more like using a shovel with a whisk broom attachment. Not sure if that made sense–just attempting to explore my description ability a little bit.

Anyway, on to the kinda big news…

Today marks the second anniversary of this blog, Fiction and Copy Decoded.

Yay. Not really sure what to say about it. I’ve learned that I need to care about something first, before others will. That I need to do my best, and show up regularly.

And it all started here, complete with a mess-up on the title of the song that the post referenced.

I’m thankful for the shove I was given to fall off the cliff of the blogosphere and take the plunge, so to speak. And I’m thankful for each and every one of you. It’s also neat that I can talk about Turkey Day here, too. (Although I have stopped doing the surveys…)

Not sure at this point if we’ll be doing Triple F this week. I don’t know if I’ll need Friday to recuperate from the awesome influx of football, turkey, rolls, pie, and what-have-ya that will be had (not necessarily in that order).

With characters and prospects too, as writers of whatever type, we can show our human side (which we should do anyway), and make connections, between characters and readers, or between prospects and their problems, and a solution. I think that’s what Thanksgiving is about, in addition to being thankful. That connection. A meaningful, worthwhile connection.

Until next time,

Ty
