A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Sleep is good, he said, and books are better.”
                              ~George R. R. Martin

Hello fellow Bookworms,

I think part of the definition of a Book Lover, is one who loses sleep while caught up in the midst of a great book. Tell me in the comments, what the last book was that kept you up late at night!

Happy Wednesday!

Enjoy!

A Question or Two for You:

Hi Everyone,

Happy last day of July!!! July was a big month in the world of literature. New surprise releases from Harper Lee and Dr. Seuss. Were you excited about either of these titles? If so, have you read either one yet? I am excited about both releases and I am very anxious to read both stories, one day. Now I know, there has been some controversies and disappointments concerning Go Set a Watchman, but my excitement hasn’t decreased at all. What about you?

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.

~Thomas Mann

 
Hi Everyone!

I think we have all at some point in our lives dealt with “Writer’s Block.” Whether it was a term paper, a proposal or even a novel. We have struggled with the impending deadline that haunts us as we stare at a blank page. This exhausting moment is yet another reason why I admire authors. Somehow they not only power through, they create a magnificent world for us to live in temporarily.

So tell me, have you ever experienced a Writer’s Block? If so, how did you overcome it? What are your favorite methods for preventing this pesky nuisance?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Enjoy!

I must admit, I haven’t read Gone With the Wind as of yet, but it has been on my Wish List since I was a young girl. I think, I shall start reading it during the month of August. Have you read it? If so, who is your favorite character?

 

Enjoy!
