Tabula Rasa

So Tabula Rasa is the theory that babies are born with a blank slate . . . meaning they know nothing in the beginning. Every experience they have fills their slate [read that, mind] and makes them who they are.

This is my mind right now. I want to claim that there was a glitch in the system, and the whole hard drive just crashed. Perhaps it was a burn out. Nevertheless, there we are.

So I've seen others do this and I've been saving the idea for just such a moment as this: Go ahead, ask me any question you would like, and I may or may not answer it in the next post.

And in the mean time, feel free to add your vote to the last This vs. That debate if you haven't already. The results are coming next week! Don't get too excited, now. ;)

And now go, and have a wonderful weekend!

Justine cheated. She saw that on Elana J's blog this morning. ;)

What is the thing you like best about writing fiction? :D

Ooh! I love asking questions to writer friends. :o)

I'm going to ask 2:
1. What would be your ideal writing life?
2. When did you first know you wanted to write? (But not necessarily get published.)

Have a wonderful weekend as well!

What's one thing about writing that, before you wrote, you never imagined would come up? (Presuming you haven't been writing since, you know, birth.)

And, was it awesome to have your picture taken with Oscar?

Interesting thought about babies being born with a blank slate, knowing nothing in the beginning. I feel like that sometimes when I'm tired! Do your children give you much input about your writing?
