I ran into a great question: What Makes Writing A Blog Post Unique? from Blogopolis Blueprint:



In the end, the question really is, What makes you think?

It is probably a  result of growing up Baptist, but I think a lot about culture:


  • Where are we now?

  • Where are we going?

  • How can I make the culture better?

  • How am I making the culture worse?


The issue is, I am not a person who is into confrontation.  I believe that consensus is very important.  I have been writing a series about Fandom and Speculative Fiction over at dashPunk, and it never ceases to amaze me how often the topics I think are going to be controversial are not, and the ones I think won't are.

As I watched this video, it really got me thinking: What makes you think?  How can someone who is not confrontational spark a thought in their readers mind to get the conversation going?

Please let me know what you think.

My name is Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett.  I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror.  I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia.  I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
