Oh, Yes, That's Awesome!

Afternoon Folks,

I know I'm posting rather late in the day, but I couldn't come up with a fun post until now. I have a couple of things of interest to share today:

Today those who drop by Nathan Bransford's blog will find out he's going to have a book out eventually (the link will take you directly to the post about his book). That's pretty cool. We'll have to keep an eye out for the story in the coming years. (I don't know the release date).

This afternoon I went to read my younger brother's blog regarding the house he's bought and is fixing up with help from his fiancee. I was so tickled because there's a phrase on there describing the work going on that follows up with the fact that "incoherent threats to the roof, rafters, drywall, wiring, and tools" had happened. Talk about awesome wording. I love that "incoherent threats..." that's gotta be awesome. It's one of those things you can imagine in your head. It's something you can relate to (maybe even have experienced yourself).

In any case, it was a rocking good phrase and I had to share. My brother and his fiancee's fortes are in music and musical composition, but apparently there's some incredible writing going on, too.

So, what about you? Have you seen a phrase recently that just made you sit up and grin? Something that struck you as great imagry? Please share, and don't forget to credit your source :-)

Have A Thrill-Filled Thursday!

I can't think of any good phrases I've heard lately but your brother's was really good. Perhaps you have another writer in the family?

Regina,

If you must know the majority of us could be writers (including my dad). My mother is a poet--she's had a little boooklet of poetry published (I think more than one). She mostly does religious poetry and it's quite good. She's also an English Major and used to work as a Librarian years ago when she and my dad were first married.

I'm not sure where anyone can pick up her poetry or how available it is, but I know she's been published. I'm quite proud of her. She's an amazing woman (and not only because she's a poet and published, but for several other reasons, as well).

The thing is, other than my mother, I'm the only one seriously pursuing a career in writing. The rest of them have other interests and demands.

I just think it's cool that so many of us keep up with friends, family members, and others in our lives via blogs!
