Three Thing Thursday

Writing for Charity:
November 4, 2017

More info to come

August Writing Challenge:  

Writing prompts.

Establishing goals.

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.

Three Thing Thursday

  1. 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?

  2. I am gathering books for the Hopi Reservation. If you would like to donate, please email me at carolthewriter@yahoo.com. 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.
  3. 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.
