There is a movement in the blogging community called Thursday Thirteen (google it). Many writers blog these days, and we often run out of things to say. Well Thursday Thirteen celebrates this kind of blog fear. Pick a topic from apples to zebras and write 13 things. That’s it. And it turns out the process is strangely revealing. I recently did this for my blog on Valentine’s Day as a Singleton it was fun! So in the spirit of learning more about ourselves here’s my OCCRWA
(I know the picture should have oranges)
13. I joined OCC in 2005. 12. At my first meeting there was a sign that said OCC members had published something like 1700 books cumulatively. I remember thinking Holy COW! 11. It turns out that four of our members have published over 100 books. One has published over 200. We call them the 100+ club. 10. Although I love their books and am very proud of them I don’t have the intense need to wrap myself around any of these four women like a vine and cling. 9. I think this might be because none of them look like David Beckham. 8. Yes, I was quite delighted to hear that David and his family were moving to Los Angeles. 7. Unfortunately, despite my interest (and his wife’s diminutive size) I’m pretty sure I won’t be wrapping myself around David either. 6. You can tell Mrs. Becks is scrappy and her spike heels freak me out. (I’m a flip flops kind of gal). 5. So after nearly 3 years at OCC what have I learned? 4. Writers often go off on tangents 3. We love research particularly in the form of man candy. (You always need to keep the next story in mind, right? *innocent face*) 2. Never separate a writer from her chocolate. 1. Or her caffeine.
