April Fun!

Happy A - Z Blog Challenge 2015!

 
 

I'm doing the A - Z with my buddies over at the Untethered Realms blog. We're doing graphics with lines from our books or WIPs. They're pretty darn good if I do say so myself!

 

Hope you can stop by!

Happy Insecure Writer's Support Group Day!




Now to the Insecure Writer's Support Group post. If you want to sign up, go HERE. Thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for hosting every month, and a special thanks to this month's minions,The awesome  Suzanne Furness, Tonja Drecker, Toi Thomas, Rachna Chhabria, Fundy Blue, and Donna Hole!
 


I'll keep it short in case you want to slip over to Untethered Realms. My only complaint is....wait for it (LOL)....TIME! No big surprise, right? Summer is my busy season at work (Why yes, it is summer in San Diego right now! Inland, where I live, we're already reaching 90 degree temps) which, when you're in the swimming pool business, means long hours and too tired to do anything in the evenings except sip on a glass of wine.

And because it's also April Fool's Day, I thought you might like a couple of jokes!

 
How many science fiction writers does it take to change a light bulb? Two, but it's actually the same person doing it. He went back in time and met himself in the doorway and then the first one sat on the other one's shoulder so that they were able to reach it. Then a major time paradox occurred and the entire room, light bulb, changer and all was blown out of existence.

And another oldie but goodie...




How many mystery writers does it take to change a light bulb? Two. One to screw the bulb almost all the way in, and one to give a surprising twist at the end.

I guess I'm a Weekend Writing Warrior now.

 How about you?

Are you doing the A-Z?

 

P.S. this blog is on hiatus for the month of April!

But! I'll still be lurking...

  6. Nice jokes. Way to kick off early summer and April fools. As for me, I’m still waiting to confirm it is actually spring here in Virginia. I’ll definitely have to check out your A-Z challenge. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Haha, I had not heard either of those jokes. Pretty funny. Its hitting near 90 here in NorCal also. Today was a lot cooler though and we're hoping for rain soon so we can send water down south to keep those pools full for you to clean :)

  15. Hope you get a lot done during your down time.
    The writing can get pushed to the side when there are lots of other stuff to do.

  16. I enjoyed the jokes! And we could all use more time. Of course, if I had more time, I'd probably waste it by sleeping or watching TV.
