More info to come
August Writing Challenge:
A prize or two.
Ending with a dinner together.
More info to come.
Today, it’s just me and computer after two pee em. I plan on writing everyday like Crazy Horses.
No more info to come. But I will let you know what I get accomplished.
(I also plan on doing some organizing stuff around the house, too. I
will let you know if I get anything done. Sure. A list.)
Plus I actually quite loved Fahrenheit 451. I got a copy that had tons of essays written about the novel in the back of the book. As I read I could see this huge rise in tension, but there were so many pages left. How was Bradbury going to pull it off?
Then, accidentally, I saw an essay. End notes. Extra Stuff! Now I understood. This book was beautifully timed. Of course. A terrific read.
And the essays aren’t bad, either.
- I am reading Fahrenheit 451. For the first time. And quite liking it. I’m not sure if I’m surprised by this. My sister loved Ray Bradbury as a kid (she always out-read me). She read Stephen King, Tolkien and Bradbury long before I did. I was stuck in Steinbeck, Faulkner and Twain.
This summer I’m reading a lot. A lot more than I have since school
What have you read recently that you’ve loved?
What have you read that you missed out on as a kid or teen?
What is a favorite book that I should read?
- I am gathering books for the Hopi Reservation. If you would like to donate, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. These books must be gently used or new. I just looked up at my shelf and saw several novels I will never read again. It’s time to let those go. I have space only for the ones I want to keep forever. Or, maybe not space, but you know.
- In August, Ann Dee and Kyra and I might be having a writing marathon again. It’s been awhile. Will let you know as we get closer. If you are interested in playing a long, let me know.
