    I think the best use of analogies is for teaching. In both the real world, and in writing when you are trying to get the reader to imagine something they have never seen by relating it to something they are familiar with.

    Science Fiction uses this a lot but I'm very against referencing pop culture items such as "It was shaped like a lightsaber." - That just seems like a cop out to me.

    (Image added for some additional humor of analogies.)

    Do I post this too much? Not at all. When legislators stop trying to keep the children in their school systems from learning proper science and hindering their development, I'll stop posting it.

    I'd be disgusted as a teacher to know that kids in my science class are going to miss out on information and education just because of their closed minded parents and backwards views. 

    When their kids go off to high school or college and suddenly the real world tells them they have to base their life on facts over fables, and the kids have to work that much harder to catch up, I hope we as a society do not lose a potential great mind to someone else's ignorance.

    "This debate isn't about the world of real science. In the scientific community, the support for the theory of evolution is unquestionable. Instead, this is about alerting the whole population that creationism is still an issue and that teaching it to students is a moral wrong."

    So the Olympics is on in the other room while I'm on the computer and I just hear the music. Apparently figure skating is on judging from the music and commentary.

    All I have going through my head is waiting for Elmer Fudd to break in:

    "With my sword and magic helmet!"

    Am I the only one?

    I have enjoyed writing my novels and stories immensely now that I have started doing this. I also have said I enjoy it so much that I wish I started 20 years ago, but this comic is a hard truth about writing.

    It is a lonely endeavor. No matter what you do, when it is time to write, you are doing it totally alone and it requires solitude. Today I have the internet communities, and all of you to discuss this with, and get feedback, and 'atta-boy' comments when I discuss accomplishments and goals and things. This all goes a really long way to keeping me motivated and trudging forward through the tough spots, which there are many I assure you.

    I don't know if 20 years ago before the Internet I would have been able to do this. I think part of me undertaking this now is the fact that while writing is a solitary activity, support is plentiful, due to all of you.

    Thank you.

    I haven't written for a week or so. Reason is I am at a point in my novel where there can be one of two things happening and I haven't decided which way it is going to go yet.

    I've been going over it in my head over the last week and I'm almost there though and expect to be writing again soon. I think I am at the point where I may not be pushing the words anymore, and they are starting to come in front of me and tugging a little.

    Almost there.

    Today is 17 years with +Irene Curry  and just after I moved from New York to Ohio all those years ago she packed me a lunch for work one day and slipped this note into it.

    It's been in every wallet I've had ever since and I carry it every day.

    17 years and when one of us goes to work or leaves the house the other is in the doorway for a kiss, then waits until the car pulls out of view.

    Returning home is another greeting at the door. Still after 17 years.

    I wish you even a percentage of the happiness that I get from having Irene in my life all these years. If you can achieve this, you'll be the second happiest person in the world. 

    Happy Anniversary Baby! I love you!
