Poetic thought for the morning: the trees are mocking summer with their winter foliage of frost. (That line occurred to me as I drove to work this morning, so I wanted to get it down. Maybe sometime I can use it in a story.)
In an attempt to clear the tumbleweeds blowing over this blog, I'd thought I'd pose some questions and see if I can raise a response from readers. A couple of things in real life and in other people's stories have made me think a bit about people who seem to need other people's opinions to make decisions of their own.
Have any of my readers noticed someone in real life doing this?
If so, did you offer your opinions or leave them to work it out on their own?
Do you see yourself as self-reliant or as seeking other's opinions?
What are the strengths and weaknesses of each trait?
If you're a writer or reader, would you rather write/read about one type of person over another?
