Looking Back at Why She Wrotes

So on Monday I mentioned that I spent the weekend at ApolloCon, so did not spend Saturday morning doing blog posts. So I thought I’d do a sort of “Why Someone Wrote” link roundup for today, instead of trying to get my recalcitrant brain to cough up something new.

Since Wednesdays are about books, the posts cover a lot of ground, so thought I’d just spotlight a few:

I’ve had a lovely selection of writer guests stop by to share why they wrote the books they wrote. Not to play favorites – okay, I will: Veronica Scott is one my favorite guests. She tells me she can’t launch a new book without a visit and I love having her. I think you’ll love reading about why she wrote Wreck of the Nebula Dream, her “Titanic in space book.”

Another thing I do on Wednesday is talk about why I read a particular book or love a particular author. One of my most visited posts is about Elizabeth Cadell, who is a long-time favorite author of mine. Like really long. Back when I was young and not dead.

And of course, I talk about why I wrote some of the books I’ve written. So I’ll finish with my very, very first book and how it came to be. (Did you know it wasn’t originally called The Spy Who Kissed Me?)

So, do you like link round-ups? Do have a severe hate for them (sorry!)? Did you learn anything new following my link trail? There will be a test later. Just kidding. Dead people don’t give tests. It’s like a rule or something.

You know I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value).  Recipient is announced the first blog post of the new month.

Perilously yours,

Pauline
