The Views from Our Windows
Minorvogonpoet saw this, if not out her window, perhaps out her car window. She was in France at the time, where she also lives. MVP was kind enough to share this photo with us so that we could see it, too. That's what we do, in a nutshell: share our views. Report our findings. Scrounge around our planet for amazing titbits concerning Life, the Universe, and Everything. Have you been reading the journals in this year's NaJoPoMo project? We hope you are. The photos decorating this week's Editorial are from the Post's Pics from a Small Planet, a collection of Contributor photography. You'll enjoy them. We also have fiction coming our way this month. See excerpts below from Freewayriding's serial, 'Freedom Found', and Paulh's work in progress, 'Cursedmas'. Like what you read? There are links to the full serials.
Other journals can be found at the Create link below: we'll be featuring more of them in next week's issue. There's a lot to unpack there, as the postmodernists say, so it will take more than one week.
In the meantime, what do we have for you this week?
- The final installment of Willem's series on Dicynodonts. He's opening our eyes to a previously unglimpsed world that lived before our own, so appreciate. Especially the pictures. You won't see these anywhere else.
- Speaking of pictures: We have photos galore. Some are beautiful. Others will make you laugh and ask, 'What were they thinking?' Be sure to leave comments. Your snark is appreciated around here.
- We have videos for music lovers. One features a guest soundtrack by Mrs Hoggett, whose piano stylings fit beautifully with the flow of the picturesque Allegheny River. In other entertainment news, the Editor proves that old hippies never grow up: they just learn new cybertricks.
- Awix analyses cinema and talks about Chris Pine's anatomy at more length than is strictly necessary. The Literary Corner shares some really old sheet music, while bobstafford has a picture quiz to make your brain work harder.
- SashaQ has been to the museum, Bluebottle has been to Legoland, Caiman Raptor Elk has at least walked past the gym, and Paigetheoracle has, as usual, been on a trip in his head. Ditto the Editor, who has written a poem about it. You will enjoy all these vicarious journeys, no doubt.
- There is more fiction than you can shake a stick at, or would want to. (Catch the cool thriller SashaQ wrote, and wonder at 'The Sorceror's Apprentice', part 1 this week.) There is humour, stop quibbling. And we're so full of writing advice we have two columns on it. Pay attention.
