IWSG and #AtoZchallenge E is for Einstein
Since I'm participating in the A to Z Challenge, I'll keep my IWSG post short today. Check out the other participants of IWSG here.
There's only one thing bothering me at the moment writing wise--there isn't much writing. It's not because I don't have ideas, I have plenty! However, life is still beating me over the head with thunderclouds and rain.
I guess the good news is I don't feel guilty for not writing. Right now taking care of my family and working with them to reach our goals is more important than my need to write. When things calm down the stories will come again. My characters are simply being kind to me by keeping quiet.
In the meantime, I'm waiting patiently for cover art and ARCs for THE MAGES' DAWN, set to be released by WiDo Publishing this fall. No date as of yet. I'll keep you posted! You can read the first chapter here.
It's A to Z time again! This year I'm blogging about a variety of science related topics. Hope you enjoy!
E is for Einstein
Everyone knows his name. Even toddlers--thanks to Little Einsteins. If you type Albert into Google, Albert Einstein is the first thing that pops up (at least on my computer!) It's amazing to me how one person can affect the entire world with his inquisitive mind. Thanks to him, I knew that when my characters journeyed to a distant world time would pass differently for them than the people they left behind.
Here's a great clip that shows the Theory of Relativity in simple terms. In my mind they could have made it half as long, but you get the idea.
And a few facts about the man himself.
Links--seriously just type him into google. There are tons of documentaries on youtube to fill days of curiosity.
If you had the opportunity to travel to another solar system and back knowing the world you returned to would be completely different, would you?
