Quotable Thursday

I love when someone writes the heck out of a sentence. On Thursdays, I try to post some of my favorites.

“The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it, and not say anything. If they fall off, they fall off, but it’s bad if you say anything to them.”
~Holden Caulfield in J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye

Happy Holidays!

I hope you’re surrounded by love and peace and joy this holiday season. I’ll be back here on the blog in two weeks. Happy New Year!

“If one believes there is truth in art—and I do—then it’s troubling how similar the skill of performing is to lying. Maybe lying is itself a kind of art.”

Wednesday: What I’m Reading

On Wednesdays, I vow to inconsistently list some good books I’ve recently read.

 

 

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows is a treasure of a book. Maybe my favorite read this year.  A YA historical, imaginative, hilarious novel with romance and magic and hilarity and sensational characters. Also, did I mention it’s hilarious?

Run to read this one, my friends.

Wednesday: What I’m Reading

On Wednesdays, I vow to inconsistently list some good books I’ve recently read.

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake is a YA fantasy – first in a series – about three sister queens who have to kill each other. It’s fantastic! The characters are great; the world’s intriguing. And her writing is phenomenal. I loved it!!

Cold weather

Winter is my second favorite season. (Nothing beats autumn.) I love snow and cold weather and wearing layers and layers of clothes. I love a fire in the fireplace and warm tea all throughout the day.

But. I miss my favorite writing spot. It’s too cold now on the porch. I can’t write with numb fingers.

Where do you like to write?
