This post grabbed my attention b/c my latest book title has the word moon in it and b/c for the past two night the moon has been shining in through my window as I write. I hope my writing reflects God's beauty.
Have a blessed weekend,
Oh. My. Goodness. It is so wierd you would post on this phenomenon, Sherrinda, because we talk about this at work whenever there's a full moon. Wackiness abounds.
People come in or call wanting 12 x 15 purple card stock with pink polka dots and greeen lizard borders, mad that we don't have it in stock. A lady screamed–I am not exagerrating–at her husband as she left the store last night because I could not take a $100 bill and she had to write a check.
Whenever bizarre occurences fill our day we look at the calendar. 99% of the time it's a full moon.
I never analyzed it in view of my writing, though. I imagine I am more sarcastic when it's a full moon. And I probably eat more chocolate then, too!
Maybe the full moon accounts for the craziness of my children. Oh wait, they're always crazy! So I guess I can't blame it on the moon! No seriously, I haven't noticed the full moon effect, but it sounds like there really is something to it!
You guys always make me smile with your comments! I've been thinking about it all day…wondering if the moon really does have an effect on people's writings. I wonder what comes out of Stephen King's head during full moon weeks!!!! Eeeek!
Oh, I hate the fullmoon. This funny thing happens to me where I grow all this hair and these awful fangs and I start howling and craving the weirdest things…like humans. What do you suppose is the problem? 🙂
Hi Sherrinda –
A former neighbor, who was a nurse, said the full moon brought out all the patients' quirks.
I never thought about how it might affect my writing. Interesting post, Sherrinda. 🙂
I've never thought about the full moon and my characters, but I have seen the crazies come out. And I've read some really great stories with characters affected by the moon (and not just werewolves).
I have a writer friend who swears by this. And she was a biology major!
I gather from the title of your blog that you're traveling the road toward publication. On September 14th, I'm going to begin posting a series of personal testimonies from authors who've made that journey. It's called My Writing Journey. Mine is up right now. My hope is to encourage other writers, like yourself, in their endeavor. It's a tough road.
