In which we have guests, part 20

For the second year in a row, I am turning over the blog to guest posters for the month of December. And for the second year in a row, we’ve had a great response–thirty-three requests for spots! For the next month you’ll be hearing from writers, editors, and other pros on a variety of topics. I always let the guest writers choose their own subject and give them carte blanche while they’re here. There are no limitations on topic or language, and this time we’ve got everything from favorite words to sexsomnia! Since I will be hunkered down doing revisions on the first of my new books for NAL/Penguin, I am turning comments off for the month. Most posters will include links to their own sites if you want to follow up with them. So, I wish you all the best of holiday seasons–peace, prosperity, good health, and a fabulous start to 2015. See you in the new year!

Today we welcome Roshni Radia.

Babe, do you think wizarding kids want to know

why the chicken crossed the road?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:29

I’m pretty sure no one wants to know why the

chicken crossed the road. I’m more interested in

 how it knew it was crossing a road.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:30

Riiiight. I don’t think many people besides you

want to know that.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:30

Their loss. Why do you ask?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:30

You know how George is. It’s all about new

ideas.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:30

So you want to pitch the chicken crossed

 the road joke with him?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:30

Yeah….crap idea right?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:30

Yes, honey.

Sorry.

Did you by any chance read up that article I

sent you about learning to say no?

Thu 18 Nov 10:31

It’s because I said yes to that thing one time isn’t

it? I said I was sorry. It was an honest mistake. How

was I supposed to know he wasn’t a real doctor?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:31

You weren’t supposed to know honey

and you know I don’t blame you.

It’s just important that you can tell when

it’s a scam or not.

Thu 18 Nov 10:31

He assured me that the woman in my life would

love a bigger penis.

You are the woman in my life.

And you like science. This is science.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:31

Read the article honey, this isn’t science.

It’s a con.

Thu 18 Nov 10:36

Honey? I’m not mad at you. I’m really not.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:36

I know. I read it. It made me angry. What if I didn’t

have you? What if the po-po hadn’t stepped in?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

I wish you would stop calling them that.

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

What? Po-po? Dude you is totes old.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

I am not. I just like calling things by their

proper name.

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

And that’s why I totes love you.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

Please stop saying ‘totes’.

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

Whatevs.

Babe, why did the chicken cross the road?

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

To get to the other side?

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

It wanted to understand the nature of the road,

how it ended up on the road, and why there was

a road in its existence at all.

 

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

Ron, sometimes I love you more than

I know how to express.

Thu 18 Nov 10:37

I know J

 

My name is Roshni and I run The Gymkhana Club. There only a few  things you need to know about me at this very moment in time:

 

  1. I love Deanna Raybourn’s books and writing a guest blog post has made my month;
  2. I love Harry Potter;
  3. Tomorrow is my last day in a job I have grown to hate and from Monday I am starting something new. I am very, very excited about this.
