August 2020 IWSG

Hello everyone and as always thanks for stopping by. These are the co-hosts for July 2020’s Insecure Writers Support Group brought to you by Susan Baury Rouchard, Nancy Gideon, Jennifer Lane, Jennifer Hawes, Chemist Ken, and Chrys Fey!

Be sure to stop by and give them some love!

August 5 Question Although I have written a short story collection, the form found me and not the other way around. Don't write short stories, novels or poems. Just write your truth and your stories will mold into the shapes they need to be." Have you ever written a piece that became a form, or even a genre, you hadn't planned on writing in? Or do you choose a form/genre in advance?

I simply write. My books fall under Speculative Fiction, a broad category of fiction encompassing genres with certain elements that do not exist in the real world, often in the context of supernatural, futuristic or other imaginative themes.

I choose nothing in advance. I simply write. My brain is wired to see the world as a place where science and the supernatural meet. They co-exist in harmony.

Sure, our world looks chaotic.

And it is.

But looking at Einstein’s famous equation E=MC2 we see energy is equal to mass times the speed of light squared. They are equal to each other.

This means some angelic and fallen angelic beings have the authority to switch from a spirit being (energy) to a physical body (mass) we can measure with our five senses, like a human, animal or a grotesque form meant to terrify children and adults alike. Then they can go back to their energy form in less than a blink of an eye.

So that’s my world. And yours. Whether you believe it or not this is the world we live in. It would explain a lot of things we see on the news every day.

Question Do you believe there is more to our lives than what we can measure with our five senses?
