Kate has an interesting topic for us this round:
This I believe. Do you find yourself repeating certain themes in your
writing? Can readers glean what you believe in or some of your life
philosophies from reading your work?
Here's a theme song for this blog chain about belief and themes:
I do repeat certain themes in my writing; in fact, these themes inspired me to come up with my tagline: "A sense of wonder, a sense of fellowship." As a science fiction/fantasy writer, I strive to take my readers to different worlds or to make them see this world in new ways ("The Book of Beasts") As a science geek, I promote the power of the scientific method and the wonder that science can inspire (Lyon's Legacy). As a Beatles fan, I believe that a small group of people, if they're committed to each other, can be greater than the sum of the parts (Twinned Universes and the still-in-progress Season Avatars series). And as a short Taurus, I believe that stubbornness is a desirable trait in a protagonist--I won't bother listing examples for this one!
