I think a lot of things are genius . . . like cookie dough ice cream, Hawaiian pizza, C.S. Lewis, electric guitars, and Brian Regan. For today’s blog post, you get random thoughts on genius.
Google the word “askew.” Genius. (Unless you are on an Ipad. Then it doesn’t work. Maybe Apple didn’t think it was funny.)
My son signed his mother’s day card with his name, followed by the phrase “future author.” Hopefully, he’s a genius.
I think inkpageant.com is genius. If you’ve never cyberjumped over there, it is a great collection of blogs. Pick your topic and get reading. I found it very helpful while trying to write a query.
Orson Scott Card is a writing genius. I just finished Speaker for the Dead. If you would like a fantastic example of how to write a very complex story, I completely recommend it. The man swims through complexity with ease. This book has at least 20 major characters, three different species, and covers a few generations (not to mention passing over 3,000 years). Yet, I could keep it all straight.
I saw the Avengers about a week and a half ago. No, I did not dress up. And yes, it was genius—the most fun I’ve had at the movies in a long time. Who would have thought the Hulk would be so funny?
What do you think it genius?
