Earlier this month I traveled to suburbs of Memphis, TN, to Germantown and Collierville. The drive down was smooth (although a little windy) and we had a nice room at the Hyatt. My daughter, Molly, and my mom took the trip with me and hung out while I was in workshops. Continue reading
I can’t believe August is almost over already. And I thought June and July went by fast!
It’s going back to school time! For this week’s prompt, let’s talk about a new year of school.
Today I’m doing the WPW a little bit differently. Since writing the other day about curiosity, I thought I’d expand on that. What kinds of things are you curious about? Do you have hobbies that you read about? Like new patterns or cookbooks if you crochet or cook?
fed the writer’s brain?
I go with the latter. I am curious about a lot of things. This is good for a writer. Curiosity can feed my brain and give me plenty to write about.
I’ll tell you why. Yesterday, I went to three public libraries in the area where I live. Yes, three.
I went to the first one to meet a writing friend so we could work on our books. During a break to stretch and walk around, I found three books and four movies to check out.
I worked at that library for a couple hours, then my friend and I had lunch together. Later that afternoon, the kids and I went to the military base library because they had 7 items on hold for me. Plus I found a new author to try.
After dinner, I took my son to Lego club at our city library and checked out even more books. I think if I counted only my library books right now, I have about 31 books to read.
This is why I’m nutty.
I feel like a kid in a candy store whenever I step foot in a library. I think, ‘Oh, I’d like to try that author’. ‘Or that book looks good’. ‘Oh, I’ve never heard of him/her, I’ll see if I like them’.
Several of my books are on homeschooling, as I’m learning about a new way of doing things. Some are fiction, and some are either about writing or marketing. I am always learning something!
And this doesn’t count the three books delivered by Amazon yesterday. 🙂
Today, I’m returning to one of those libraries (the bigger one) so the kids can get more books. Am I crazy or what?
How many library books do you have on hand right now? I’m curious to know if I’m the only nutty one about books!
