Faux-sion

I'm going to do two posts today ... cuz it's my turn ... and I wanted an opportunity to put in my 'too sense' on the gaming topic.

Today's week is Fashion week, and I have a lot to say on the subject.

Like ... um ...

Lessee, I'm sure I have something to say on the subject.

Uh...

Okay, fine, I don't have much to say about fashion. My idea of fashion is whether to wear a red or a green Hawaiian shirt. My wife needed a court order to get me to stop wearing really short hide-nothing terry cloth shorts (actually, the main reason I stopped wearing them is because they stopped making them).

In my books, I rarely discuss what my characters are wearing, or much about what they even look like. I took Stephen King's advice about writing and only describe something if it furthers the story.

That way you don't get bored (eye wiggle).

When it's important, though, I do. It was important that you know the sorcerer (Thurman) only wears black clothes. In my story in "Missing", when Thurman disappears, the characters mention that since he took to wearing a camouflage jacket he might not be missing - they just couldn't see him.

Otherwise, they wear normal duds, so I don't take the time to describe them and can get on to the the general hilarity that is my writing.

But there is something I like about fashion ... yep, Super Models.

That's all, y'all.

You and me both about fashion, Norm. Except super models don't do it for me!
