PREDICTING YOUR NEXT GREAT READ

September Wrap Up!

I was able to knock out 14 books this month which was a huge win for me to pull me out of my low reading desire lately. I checked out a lot of books from the library and two of them I have not included here (Would have been 16 read) because I got bored with them. Since they didn’t hold my interest and since I wound up flipping through […]

Lack of Integrity in the Book Industry?

I wanted to show you all the truth on the lack of integrity sometimes in the book industry. Open your eyes to the fact that not all publishers/authors are legit. Some are shady and want to pay for “tailored” reviews. Any book blogger that says they have never been asked to be biased in a review (never?!) is either lying, hasn’t been approached for reviews often, or is very lucky. […]

Through The Senses

Use no abstraction, no generalization, no summary, no analysis, no interpretation. Force yourself to write moment to moment through the senses only. Don’t hassle your style, don’t agonize over the right word; just keep the flow of it through the senses-flowing, flowing, flowing. Don’t think, don’t think. Senses, senses, senses. Stage One: Okay, so I awake and notice that stuff is moved around from how it was when I fell […]

Duchess the Dragon!

The only requirement is that you must (choose) a pet you have never owned.   Duchess is majestic. Her wings shimmer an incandescent blue/gray in the dawn light. Reaching out toward her, she folds her wings in as she lands next to me. Gently nuzzling my hand, loudly chomping away at whatever plants she has managed to find, she lets out a sigh of contentment. “Oh Duchess. Did you have […]

A Recipe & A Simile

The morning sun tastes like: Honey mingled into your morning tea. Her voice smelled like: Chocolate. Dark, seductive, and smooth. The music sounded heavy as: A cat seated firmly upon your chest. The color green feels like: The ridges of a crispy potato chip fresh from the oven. The color red tastes like: Victory. Midnight rain is bitter as: Tea that has steeped far too long. The wind looks as ___________ as: […]

Surrealism Exercise, Or Thinking Outside The Box.

Running Hands Fountain Pen After a long day of running, she discovered that her hands had grown a fountain pen.   Now Maria had barely even had time to stop to think let alone process what had just happened. Each of her hands had its own fountain pen growing out from her index fingers. She had been concentrating rather hard on how badly she needed to begin her bullet journal for […]

August Wrap Up!

I was able to knock out 8 books this month which was a low number for me, but I’m not going to worry about it because I was hitting a reading slump. I checked out a lot of books from the library and started to read many but had to stop after a few pages or chapters since they were not holding my attention. After #Booktubeathon I think I was a […]

Road Trip to Missouri!

Hubby and I decided to take a three day road trip to Missouri so we could see the eclipse in 100% totality clearly. We filled up our gas tank and drove down on Saturday, listening to music and a couple podcasts. After another gas station stop (fuel both for us and our car), we made the rest of the drive and got checked into our hotel. Beyond the main reason […]

July Wrap Up

I thought June had been a busy reading month for me hitting in at 15 books read, JULY was the busy reading month at 17 books read(!) Granted seven of those reads were during #booktubeathon so I suppose this is to be expected. Be sure to check out my Youtube July Wrap Up video (available on August 2nd) to hear me briefly chat about each read as well as my […]

Why I don’t “f4f”:

F4f, more commonly seen/used on Instagram, but may be used on other social media platforms, is a waste of time. Allow me to elaborate. When it is used with friends/people you actually know in real life it can be great. You can follow your friend and they can follow you and that’s basically how Facebook works with friend requests being a mutual exchange of “Hey, you can access my stuff […]
