One reason why....

Writing, as ya'll know, can be a lonely, frustrating thing. But some of us just can't help but do it. And why? Well, there are a ton of reasons, of course, but one of the big ones is to end up with something that other folks actually get to see.

Over at the Disco Mermaids, Jay Asher has been talking about this (and I borrowed his debut novel's title Thirteen Reasons Why for my blog title because I just love stealing... errr... borrowing from him). And today he posted about another, pretty much unexpected cool thing that's happening with (or around) his book. Perhaps it's another "why" what with being able to bring your characters even further into the world than you can do in a book. Or maybe it's totally unrelated and just cool anyway. (Hey, it turns out that the Class of 2K7 is talking about "Why Do You Write" too.)

Anyway, it's way more high-tech than my talk of podcasts of book trailers, that's for sure. Interesting stuff indeed.

Thanks for the plug, Mr. Greg.

And feel free to steal away!!! (Although then it's not really stealing, is it?)
