As we may have mentioned once or twice ;), we’re both great fans of April’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. Set up by Arlee Bird back in 2009, it’s grown like topsy since that time. As neither David nor I are able to participate again this year, we decided instead to highlight one (or more) blogs each day, to encourage you to visit, to make new friends, and to find some entertainment during the current crazy world we’re in.
Some of these highlights will be old friends we’ve made during previous challenges, but some will be new. We don’t plan to stick to any theme other than maintaining a (possibly tenuous) connection to the letter of the day.
On to today’s letter – P
Today’s shout out has to be for the awesome-sauce James Pailly and his blog Planet Pailly. James is both a good friend to this blog, giving us a great short story from a prompt we posted, and giving us a #SecondThoughts piece which led to the creation of our new series ‘Now with added…’. The majority of James’ blog is given over to presenting science and sci-fi concepts in an accessible way, but he also presents some of his fiction writing too, and also his thoughts on writing as a process (as part of the Insecure Writers Support Group). His theme this year is the background to his forthcoming ‘Tomorrow News Network’ series, and specifically the first novel ‘The Medusa Effect’. There is a popular meme, ‘Take my money!’: if I only has the snippets to go on, and if James’ decides to go down a Kickstarter or Unbound route, I would definitely contribute to getting this book puplished. ‘Nuff said.
If you’re catching up, here’s our previous highlights …
Let us know of other blogs connected to the letter P which we should read.
