Question of the Day

Via Julie:

If you wrote a book, what would it be about?

I’ll let you know when I finish it.

7 barks and woofs on “Question of the Day

  1. It would probably be along the lines of what I like to read – Science Fiction. It would be soft on the science to make room for the characters to talk amongst themselves, with just enough action to keep the plot moving along to the ambiguous conclusion of whatever conflict I’d based it on, with lots and lots of TV tropes thrown around along the way.

  2. A story that happens inside the center of the universe. Of course, there is also the short story “Journey to the Center of the Universe” to accompany.

  3. It would attempt to explain why conservatives are the way they are, using a metanalysis of biology, psychology, sociology, and anthropology research. Chris Mooney’s The Republican Brain tried to do this but left out a lot of information.

  4. While I don’t believe being ordinary or average or normal is anything to be ashamed of, neither do I think those qualities something of which one can be proud. In fact, to be ordinary is to be boring, mundane and most especially to lack the sublime quality of originality. I suspect, even though I risk invoking Ayn Rand, that this is the underlying theme of anything that I write.
