Putting NaNoWriMo Behind Me

I love National Novel Writing Month. If not for that organization, I would not have found my writing group which is also my critique group. And my lunch group. And my gift exchange group. We have turned into a family of sorts because we understand each other and the need to create. And the need to be supported and have encouragement when we plunge into self-doubt.

So I decided that would be a fun topic to cover in this blog. There’s a multi-part documentary called The History of Sex from 1999, but I want to look beyond humans. I doubt we primates invented the act, or are the only creatures who do it just for fun sometimes. Continue reading “Who Invented Sex?”
