Occasionally we writers need to take a break from the business of writing, the how-tos, the schedule. Occasionally something special comes across my desk that just feels right, maybe even current. Besides, you know that old 50s tune, "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to?" Same thing with blogging. There are lots of rules, but sometimes we just get to do what we want. I hope you find this essay by science fiction novelist Dr. Wesley Britton as worthwhile as I do!
