Put down your bags, pull up a chair and tell me a story!
Amy asked me to do a guest blog on her blog, so here I am. I have to admit I have never done anything like this before, so you will all have to bear with me on this. Since Amy’s blog is what she reading and her reviews of books, I am going to talk about writing and of course, reading. Let’s start with writing.
I am a writer myself. I write original fiction and some Fanfiction. Writing for me is to get out whatever is on my mind, whether it been a love story with paranormal twist or a real life encounter with someone. I always try to have a notebook on hand because you don’t know when the urge will strike. It could be a song that set that spark. Right now, I am brainstorming on a story that has cross dimensional twist to it. I may never work on it again, but at least I have it written it down to where I can come back to it if I so choose.
Reading! I love reading. Amy can probably tell you better than I can, but I go through (on a good week) at least a few books a day. On Goodreads.com they have this 2012 Reading Challenge, and this year, I have pledged to read 350 books. I am already at 285. Granted I don’t have a job, so I spend most of my free time reading and some of those books (I would say about a quarter) are graphic novels. I go to the library so often, that the librarians know me by name or my face. I just love to read. It takes you away from everything.
Well, I have had a blast on this post and I hope I have inspired you to pick up a book or take up writing.
