TOMORROW I'm going to be discussing the problems with birth order I've been stumbling across in HELEN regarding her twin brothers, Castor and Pollux, and the myths surrounding parentage and events. Seriously, it is much harder to determine who came first and how than you'd think.
FRIDAY I am going to be announcing my plans to celebrate 100 followers with: A BLOGFEST! with a PRIZE even! I will also draw attention to a new blogfest that is coming to us, also.
NEXT TUESDAY! (Yes I am that far ahead of myself. It was an accident.) I will be discussing Aphrodite's hair color-- a case study in character description issues in HELEN and my other books, because last night I started researching it, and all of a sudden it was 3am and I still did not have the answer. It also involved shopping at the Walgreens website, apparently, where I found this:
I'll leave you with this box of hair dye to consider until Next Week's fabulous Aphrodite post.
Rewriting HELEN seems to be good for the blog! Not so good for MY hair, because I feel as though I am spending a lot of time Pulling it out.
Oh sweet Amalia, I think I'm as excited as you are! Another blogfest? YES PLEASE!!ReplyDelete
Also, that hair colour is divine. I can't research by browsing hair dye colours anymore because my hair tends to end up that colour since I may or may not buy the dye.... *whistles* Trying really hard to stick with brown hair but that colour looks so pretty ... :~)
Those are great posts! I'll be here to read them.ReplyDelete
Haha! Mia! DIVINE Hair Color?! APHRODITE?! I don't know why, but that makes my day :)ReplyDelete
Yeah, I don't think I could get my hair to that shade without bleaching, though, which is a sad story. I am anti-bleach for coloring. But I haven't dyed my hair since college, and probably never will again. I am too lazy for hair dye :)
I want to hear about the hair color thesis.ReplyDelete
David, I am even including PICTURES. It's going to be a good time.ReplyDelete
Hooray for blogfests! Can't wait to hear more.ReplyDelete
Red hair always struck me as otherworldly awesome, so I'm eager to hear what you have to say about it.
I am looking forward to all of your posts. And to the Aphrodite post, as well. You know I'll have to weigh in. I already know part of what I'm going to comment on!ReplyDelete
Laurel: Red hair was probably more common in antiquity than blond, honestly.ReplyDelete
Sarah: Hooray! I can't wait to hear your comments!
Ooooo, those are some nice teasers. I'll be visiting, for sure.ReplyDelete
