Growing One Follower at a Time

This is indeed a joyous occasion. This week, I reached a milestone. I have 200 followers on my blog. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s kind of a big deal. I understand if I reached 500, I’d be raising banners or something. But I’ll take it for what it’s worth. 200 followers is something I didn’t think would happen. Hell, I thought I would never reach 100 followers. It’s been a slow process. And I’m sure along the way, I lost some followers. Continue reading “Growing One Follower at a Time”

2016 A to Z Challenge: S is for Scenery

2016AtoZDay19

One of my favorite cartoons is Looney Tunes. In one cartoon short (spoiler), Bugs Bunny is playing around with Daffy Duck, redrawing in different scenarios. My favorite is him as a walking flower with a flag sticking out that subtlety says “screwball.” But what sticks out to me the most is Bugs changing the scenery on Daffy. It got me thinking how important is scenery in media, especially writing. Continue reading “2016 A to Z Challenge: S is for Scenery”
