Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, wants to know about our reading and writing habits lately. Let’s see what he wants to know.
1] How real do you need your reality reading or fiction reading to be?
I enjoy reading science fiction (e.g., Asimov), fantasy (e.g., Tolkien), and horror (e.g., King), where I know, going in, that I need to suspend disbelief. But I also like detective novels, suspense, intrigue, and even multigenerational sagas, and for those kinds of novels, the characters and storylines must be realistic or at least plausible.
2] Have you knowingly noticed over the last 9 months and since the arrival of Covid – 19 your writing style has altered?
My writing style, no. My topics, yes. I write a lot about the devastation and destruction due to the pandemic. I also write about the devastation and destruction due to Donald Trump and his GOP goodies.
3] Have you noticed any changes in the way that you personally blog – for instance your overall outlook and positivity reflects upon you differently now?
I’ve noticed that I personally blog about more things that are devastating and destructive in our world in 2020. And as to outlook and positivity? I’m afraid that’s been M.I.A. this year.
