Lock In: It made me love reading again

For this Writer Wednesday, I want to show my love for a writer other than myself. If you read this week’s Weekly Rewind post, you’ll know that I’ve recently started doing the book club thing again, although this one is one that merges my love of books with my love of all things geeky.

My first book with this new club was an absolute joy! It’s been a long time since a book made me want to stay up into the wee hours and read instead of getting the sleep I need to be a functional human being, but this book had me looking like a zombie for part of last week because whenever I’d wake up in the middle of the night (a somewhat regular thing in my old age), I’d reach for this book.

What book is it? Lock In by John Scalzi.

And just FYI: there will be some spoilers ahead. Though I try not to include too many of them, there are a few things that I want to talk about that can’t be discussed without a spoiler or two coming out.

Consider yourself warned!

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Playing Catch Up

Good evening Rewinders! This week everything is a little wonky. Again, I didn’t get the #WriterWednesday post up on time… or at all! Again, the weekly rewind is a little late, though I promise to post before the weekend is technically over. But, hopefully, after today is done I’ll be back on track. It’s been a busy weekend!

For that matter, it’s been a relatively busy week!!

As such, the soundtrack for this week’s rewind is full of trance and dubstep.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: A little early…

Good afternoon weekly rewinders! Last week I was late with the post, and now this week I’m a teensy bit early… well early for me. And I’ve already (just two weeks in) messed up my timing for posting a creative writing piece on Wednesdays…

I do have an explanation, though some might call it an excuse. I’m sick again.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Make a Choice.

(This was supposed to post yesterday, so just pretend you’re reading it on Sunday)

Good afternoon Rewinders! I have to admit I’m in a fairly wonderful mood! While on the one hand, it seems imminent that I’m going to be forced to do things that aren’t what’s best because Some don’t see the value in my way, on the other (the one that is more important), I’m being constantly reaffirmed for my gifts. My success lately is in being able to identify that those positive affirmations of my talents are more important, and more true than the criticisms in my methods.

And that’s where today’s title comes in: Make a choice…
