Kathryn, you have a brilliant blog here! You need to copy this reply and post it under your own banner and fly it high. Thank you for your very thoughtful addition.

Agreed, defining creativity really doesn't seem to be possible. And yes, curiosity is a doorway to the imagination. I wish more people had it!

Barbara and Laura, you've hit on something many of the psychologists say, although I'm not quite sure how it works. It's the reason many writers say they find solutions to plot problems when they sleep. Our minds need quiet to go deep inside and fit together puzzle pieces.

LOL, Nancy, yes! I'm not anal about quiet and order, but when people start desecrating books...yeah, the edge would come quickly!

Shannon, you're taking several pieces of reality and putting them together into a different idea, so that's creative--or inventive--depending on definition, I guess. Although condensing them to one paragraph shows a high level of discipline as far as I can see!

which, of course, brings up the question of whether our "instincts" are part of the creation process. But it's always good to have people who just want to read what we dream up!

I think every one of the wenches can honestly say we love and seriously relate to librarians. But I couldn't do what they do any more than I could be a teacher, another segment of society I admire with all my heart and soul. I wonder if there's a difference between having a head full of ideas and actually acting upon them?

Everyone likes to be unique, and we all are, in our separate ways. But whether that uniqueness is artistry, eccentricity, or pure madness may be up for question!

LOL, okay, I can accept that. I never considered myself creative when I told the math teacher the answer without working the problem in the Olde Skool Way, and creative accounting was always frowned upon , but I love the idea of finding the answer first.

I’ve always wanted to write about a mad librarian. Well, that’s probably a lie, but it’s hard to tell since I lie for a living Continue reading

I love what you said about heroines! Women who push down barriers are the kind of women I love to read about. Thanks for stopping by the wenches!

Oh, I used to know Emma Lange. Are her books out in digital now? I need to replace my Regency library after we had to leave all the paper books behind. I'm trying to replace them!

I read the Russians when I was young. I would definitely not have the patience now. Oscar Wilde on the other hand...really needs to be read aloud.;)

Impressive list, Karin! I love hearing how many enjoy a beta hero like adorable Freddy. Gives me hope for the future! I think my TBR pile is about to topple now.

What I love about these recommendations that I can tell by the books you're loving, that I love your taste. So now I've added Hollaway to my list, thank you!

I haven't read Windflower since it came out. May be time to renew my acquaintance. And Kinsale is just awesome, period.

What a lovely trip, even if cold and soggy! A chance to catch up on the toppling TBR pile is never a bad thing. And I totally approve of your reading choices. I just finished the second of the Ladies of Lantern Street series. Entertaining!

Sad but beautiful reading! I've not heard of Vinnie Hansen though. Worth checking out?

So glad you're enjoying the Wenchly books, Jeannette! And there's a new Peter Wimsey coming out? Oh my, oh my...off to hunt. Thank you!

It sounds as if you're on the cutting edge if you're already reading books that aren't out yet! I don't keep up half so well. Now must go mark Robin's book on my list.

I just finished Hubble Bubble by Jane Lovering, published by an interesting English firm called ChocLit. Hubble is an intelligent combination of chicklit, women’s fiction, and romance Continue reading

What is strange is how the more things change, the more they stay the same, as the cliche goes. The protests and marches in the 1960s led to Civil Rights law and much needed changes here in the US, but it does depend on how government reacts to rebellion that should affect the manner of protest. A heavily milatristic government would be dangerous to protest--the whole point of a military government. A democratic government, while not necessarily open to change, would be less likely to risk sending military against protesters. Interesting post, Jo!

We're still having typepad problems. We're trying to respond to comments using the reply function but typepad is sticking its tongue out at us. But this is one of the reasons we all hang out together--we have around the clock blog care! We'll all get through eventually. Thank you, everyone, who has responded! Keep it coming. Swag happens!
