Thoughts While Reading Last Night

Last week a friend of mine downloaded the Goodreads app to her cell phone and joined up with many others on a 2017 book reading challenge. You set a goal of a certain amount of books to read within the year and then off you go to meet that limit. I have never joined that …

Writing About Knitting Is A Thing..

  Four years ago, before the creation of this blog, I had another blog. A knitting blog. Yes, where I talked about knitting specifically. I have no idea if I had any followers because I was on Blogger and didn’t have a clue what I was doing. I looked at it as an online knitting …

Lies That Change Your Life

Lies That Change Your Life

One of my favorite books is Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts. I even love the movie and think that it is one where both book and film are equally well done. If you haven’t read it, I highly suggest it. It’s a love story, sort of. It’s about this young pregnant girl who …

NaNoWriMo Update

NaNoWriMo Update

Time for a NaNo update. If you look over to your right in my sidebar you should notice a NaNo word count widget. Do you see it? There’s a number in it. I have written about 12, 606 words to date. I’ll be honest. That number does not count the words that I’ve written and …

A Bit of a Rant

A Bit of a Rant

I’m on a bit of a tear today. I received an email this morning about a children’s book summit that is going to take place in New York. It is being hosted by Nielsen Entertainment, the same Nielsen as the Nielsen ratings. The email reads “How do kids discover and engage with books in our …
