I apologize that the week continues with me giving you the ol razzle dazzle. I have several good ideas and even a few half started posts, but it has been one hell of a week here at The Hall of Rectitude. In addition to the broken water main and its band-aid fix (which has reduced the water pressure enough that sometimes the other appliance think they're not getting water) there's been some trouble with my sidekick renewal paperwork, and I may soon have to find a new place to live.
Who is the best non-binary character in a written work of fiction? Our April poll needs nominations. But mostly it needs seconds to its existing nominations.
As a small but unfortunate reminder (given how much love Sandman got), the polls here at Writing About Writing are strictly about written books. It's not that I don't like graphic novels, and it's certainly no bullshit like I don't think they're "real art" or anything, but writing in a text only medium means the tools for creating portrayal are very different. Both action and description must be described. I may eventually run some polls about writing in other media though.
Pop over here if you want to see the rules, see who's been nominated, second or make a new nomination. Please don't put a nomination here. I'll take it, but you want it where more people will see it.
