Back in the year 2000, the folks of Austin, Texas launched a “Keep Austin Weird” campaign.
Apparently, everything is indeed bigger in Texas — including the weirdo population.
Then a splinter group (weirdos, I’m betting) decided to go national by decreeing that September 9th would be known forevermore as Wonderful Weirdos Day.
And that’s great news for us!
Weirdos make the best characters, after all.
Think of it…
The Mad Hatter
Of course, as writers and artists, we tend to walk on the weird side as well.
And that’s certainly wonderful, too!
PROMPT: Celebrate your own weird self today! Then create a quirky character and plot his or her (or its!) wild adventure. After all, who wants to waste precious life moments reading about “normal” people? I mean, that would be weird.
