I'm so glad to finally be back from my long holiday/vacation. I hope your holidays were both peaceful and productive. A special thanks to Brian and Kara for keeping the blog fires burning while I was away.
Oh the pressure! OK, I really wanted to do a highly intellectual post for this, my first blog of 2008. But frankly, the most literary thing I've done in the past two weeks is go on The Cat in the Hat Ride at Universal Studios, Orlando (which is fabulous, by the way).
So instead, I'd like to offer up the following entertaining feature brought to you by AbeBooks.com: Authors with Tattoos
Tattoos are no longer the symbol of rebellion they once were but for many people, including plenty of authors, they have deeply personal meanings and, sometimes, there is a story behind the writer's artwork.
Of course, I've been on the cutting edge of this trend for awhile... ahem... I believe I've mentioned my Strunk & White tattoo previously here on The Writer's Perspective. Yes, I know all about the joy of having a meaningful, symbolic tat (that's what we hipsters call our tattoos).
How about you. Do you—or have you ever considered—a tatoo, especially one that's symbolic to your writing? If so, show us your ink—and tell the story behind it of course—on the WD forum.
