Pet Peeves

We’ve been watching Game of Thrones, most excellent series and extremely well done.  It follows the story line; however, if you do not read the books then you are missing out on so much.

Why do the characters when in cold climes like north of the wall refuse to wear the hoods, cloaks, furs, etc. over their heads.

Although it is a myth that 40% to 80% (depending on your mother and which myth you’ve heard) is false but if you don’t cover your legs, as in wearing shorts, you will lose heat through your bare legs; you also will lose heat if your head is not covered.

Personally, when winter camping I almost always wore a hat and had severe hat head but I was much warmer than not.  Basic survival skills are to protect your bare skin with cover ups to avoid heat loss, hypothermia and frost bite.  I know, I’ve seen all of it and do not want that for me and mine.

I know, the actors just want to look good and tougher or it may really be fake snow and not that cold, etcetera, etcetera; but come on, put something on to warm up if you have it.

So let me know, Dear Writers and Dear Readers, what are your pet peeves happen to be and I’ll accumulate and post them as well. 

Also, in the near future there will be new posts with author interviews since I’m being contacted and will feature those as they are conducted and roll in.  I’m looking forward to talking with all of them.  Let me know if you have any questions you’d like to ask authors as well and I’ll add them to my list to ask them.

Let’s do a project together, Dear Writers, Dear Readers, Dear Authors and Dear Bands! 

If you are an author with a published book or a band with or without a book or an up and coming celebrity and want to garner following or get your message out there then  I’d like to interview you and feature you and your book(s) or message on this web site in one of my blogs.

 

I would love to help you, Dear Writers; at the same time you will be helping me be a better coach and editor.
