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 :)
blue and have a tail and really big hands.
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?
