Whew, I'm back!
Sorry about not posting yesterday, everyone. I had to make an unexpected trip up north to deal with some family business and I just got back last night. (That's also why I haven't commenting or updating much.)
But now I've returned and I'm looking forward to catching up with you all. I've missed my awesome blog friends!
Speaking of awesome blog friends, I'm issuing a call for guest posts! I'm tired of talking about myself all the time, and I'd love to have some of you over to chat.
Obviously posts on writing or things-no-one-told-you would be grand, but I'll consider any topic as long as it's entertaining and creates conversation. If you want to write a guest post, send me an email at miriamforsterauthor (at) gmail (dot) com, with your name, the subject you want to write on, and a link to your blog if you have one.
(Also, don't forget my City of a Thousand Dolls art contest! There's only three entries so far, so your chances are super awesome.)
In other, more random news, I made a dinosaur board on Pinterest. Because DINOSAURS ARE AWESOME.
And I have this infographic I've been meaning to put up, made by a lovely gal named Jen R., who emailed me to ask if I wanted to take a look at it. It's about Wikipedia and the encyclopedia and how Wikipedia is redefining research.
Cool, right? I admit that while I love Wikipedia, the idea that no one is writing this information down anymore makes me a bit uneasy. Electronic information can be so easily manipulated, and while I know the staff at Wikipedia keeps a close eye on that sort of thing, it raises all kinds of distopia-ish scenarios in my mind.
Of course, I'm an over-imaginative, pessimistic person, which is why I'm a writer. What do you think?
