Hump Day, Writing, and Quantum Theory

Got some good suggestions when I mentioned I'd probably be cutting back to twice a week with my blog posts. Still haven't decided exactly which days yet, but in the meantime here's another Hump Day camel for you. 

What's this guy shouting about?

(Photo courtesy of The Morgue File. It's a great place to find pics for free.)

Why, he's telling you go check out Deb Molly's post over at The Debutante Ball!

Molly asked me a writerly question about voice and plot, and I answered her the best I could. Which means, of course, I had to bring quantum mechanics into it...

Remember, every day this week you leave a comment over there (even if it's just "Hi!") is another entry to win a signed ARC of In a Fix. For FREE. As in, you don't have to shell out your hard-earned money for it.

Today's Question:

With regard to quantum theory, do you lean toward strings or particles? 

(Personally, I favor "Silly String Theory" -- I think the universe was sprayed out a giant can.)

Or, for the less scientifically minded ...

Ice cream: bowl or cone?

Bowl! Cones are too messy, and I hate being sticky.

I think Antony Garrett Lisi's theory is promising, though still in its early stages: Its elegant simplicity appeals to me.

We were definitely separated at birth.

Ice cream cone all the way! I like getting up close and personal with my food, and a cone is an environmentally friendly container. :-)

Particles. I like that word better :) and whatever you do you MUST keep posting on Wednesdays. I need my weekly camel!!!!

i have no opinion on quantum theory.

i have an opinion on ice cream -- bowl!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Particles. I mean, if ya think about it, aren't STRINGS made out of particles, too?

As to the dish or cone question... YES! I'll have both, thank you.

Silly string sounds good!

LD Masterson said...

Too tired to think about quantum anything today. But I'm all about ice cream on a cone.

Michele Shaw said...

Strings and bowls. That's my final answer;)

I'm with Susan - strings are made of particles. Although I love the notion that this planet, at least, is the result of a spray from a silly sting can.
Dove bars. Definitely Dove bars.
