Today, I've been updating my affiliate links here, as well as on Alternative Wiring and Random and Crafty, brainstorming writing projects to come, doing some job hunting and assorted other things.
One of those possible projects might require a little bit of crowd sourcing. Ever since writing Famous Female Scientists and Their Contributions and Women Warriors in History, over on HubPages, I've had the idea of self publishing a book or two about remarkable, diverse women overlooked in history.
I'd enjoy doing the research, the writing and the primary editing, but I'd still want to hire out for the cover art and subsequent editing. Plus, of course, there's the matter of publishing costs. Naturally, that means money, which I don't necessarily have to spend.
I don't know. It's something that bears more thought, because it will be labor intensive, and we do need to eat 'n stuff.
Meh. Anyway. Since I missed it yesterday, here's my offering of Friday Fictioneers, generously hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

“I just don’t get it,” my brother growled. “It won’t turn on!”
“Is it plugged in?” I eyed my freshly baked muffins, and debated which one to take first.
“Of course it’s plugged in!”
“Geeze, you don’t need to yell.” I leaned against the counter, warm pastry in hand. “Did you try hitting it?”
“Just because you abuse your appliances doesn’t mean I should.”
I snorted. “Who do you think I learned it from?” Rustling sounded in the background, before a mechanical whirring. “Fixed?”
“Well? What was wrong?”
Only the whirr spoke for a second. “It wasn’t plugged in.”
