The Problem with an X-Men marathon

Every time I make my usual rounds to visit a few awesome blogs by my fellow authors and readers I think to myself, "Wow Shannen you really need to step up your game and update your blog more often than once a month." And it's true. I really should update more often. The thing is, this is a writer's blog for a writer who's talking to other writers or readers. So it seems like I should probably be writing about... well... writing.

But here's the thing.

I don't like to write about writing. If I'm sitting down to write, I want to write a story, not a blog post about writing itself. Granted, I do like to answer questions so if people had specific writing questions I could write 15 blogs on that. But to just sit down and write a post out of the blue is probably not going to happen.

Which brings me to the point of this blog.

If you could be one of the X-Men, which one would you be?

Or maybe, if you could have one of their powers which would you have?

I've been thinking about this a lot recently because, as stated many times before, I'm a huge nerd. The kind of nerd who tries to talk to my husband about what I should spend my skill points on in a game or quotes a murderous AI named GLaDOS constantly.

That being said, if I could have any power in the X-Men, I think I would want Nightcrawler's power. Admit it. It would be pretty awesome to teleport! Though I don't think he can teleport over long distances. But still. Pretty cool :)

Though I don't know if I'd want to be blue and have a tail and really big hands.

I'd also love The Pheonix's power to be made of awesome, but without the side effect of being a complete psychopath.

So that's my very informative writerly blog post!

What X-Men power would you want? 

Until next time!


PS: I'm working on a new website that's still very work in progress. What do you think?
