In Memory Of Anne McCaffrey

I feel bad for finding out over a week late but better late than never. On Nov 21st, Author Anne McCaffrey passed away at her home in Ireland at the age of 85.  I had used her setting of Dragonriders of Pern to show how to do world building well in an earlier blog post just a few months ago.  I began reading her books in Junior High and her writing was a great influence on my imagination and my own imaginary worlds.  She will be remembered among the many great writers that have come before.

I feel even worse finding out just tonight that she had passed away over a month ago! :(

If I hadn't been following other writers' blogs and podcasts, I still wouldn't know myself.

McCaffrey used her life well and we should live ours to the fullest in whatever pursuits we choose too.
