Jules Verne Day!

I've felt bombarded with events in the past few days, and found so many interesting links that I stopped posting here so much, but I think this simple url deserves a quick post today! I thought it was cool how Google gave Jules Verne his own day, especially since France gave him a whole year on the centennary of his death in 2005. It made me think about how much influence a writer can have on the imaginations of scientists, and how it's often the imagination of writers whose ideas become real, by inspiring the goals of young people who grow up to be engineers. I'm glad I'm a writer. I hope one day I can overcome my challenges and really learn to express myself fully in writing, and write lovely, crazy sci-fi and adventure books.
