It has been an unusually mild, wet summer around my neck of the woods (as they say here in Arkansas). Few 90 degree + days and (thankfully) no 100 degree + days. In other words, when it wasn’t raining, we’ve had beautiful days to enjoy. No wonder I’m doing more bicycle riding than writing. But I do remember those blistering summer days when it was so hot all I could do is kick back and enjoy lounging in the pool.
I’ve been away from the Internet for the last few weeks taking a summer vacation and just relaxing. As for writing, I think this sums up the entirety of my summer:
Writing is writing (as the saying goes) whether it be novel, poem, short story, grocery list, or whatever.
This witty meme—a hilarious spin on science and space exploration with a twist of imaginative science fiction and fantasy—popped up in my email and made me laugh aloud. Hopefully, it will bring a smile to your face as well.
Who knows, perhaps it could also be a short story inspiration?
