I am a huge fan of Douglas Adams. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy inspired me to write the story I've been doing for the April A-Z Challenge. I love the humor of his stories, the way anything is possible in the worlds he created, the writing style. My list could go on and on.
There's no question that Douglas Adams died too soon. I wonder how many more wonderful stories he could have told. I would therefore like to throw a blogfest in honor of all the smiles and laughs he added to this world while he was here.
Towel Day is celebrated on May 25th each year. Since that day falls on a Saturday this year, and I know not everyone posts on weekends, I wanted to stretch this out over a few days so everyone who wants to participate can have the chance. If you want to join in, you need only post once between Friday, May 24th and Monday, May 27th.
What should you post? Why, anything that pays some kind of tribute to Douglas Adams or his work. For example, you can post about the following:
-Your favorite Douglas Adams quotes.
-Your favorite Douglas Adams creation and how it impacted you.
-Why you love the number 42.
-Your favorite towel.
-How you would use a towel to get out of a wacky situation.
-Flash fiction or poetry inspired by Douglas Adams.
Those are just examples, of course. I'm happy to leave this wide open so you can let your imaginations run wild. After all, any tribute to Douglas Adams should in no way be constrained by the normal bounds of space, time, logic, etc. That would defeat the purpose!
So if you love Douglas Adams and can take the time to celebrate, sign up, grab one of the buttons I've offered below, and have fun! Oh, and don't forget your towel!
I made multiple buttons for this so you'll be able to choose the one that works best for you. The striped ones were supposed to look like towels. Forgive me if it didn't come out exactly right. I'm a writer, not an artist!
For those of you who would like to post the linky list with your post can use this code to do it:
