As everyone probably does, I go through phases. When I am writing less on my blog, I am probably reading more books. This year, for my Goodreads reading challenge, I challenged myself to read 30 books in 2016. Last week, I reached my goal! Some books I absolutely loved, like The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, and others I merely finished to say I did, such as Eragon, by Christopher Paolini. I abandoned a couple of books completely after the first couple chapters because I just couldn’t read any more, so they are not on the list.
At the third wedding we attended this year, there was a fun table with three typewriters. Real, honest to goodness typewriters! Let me tell you, I had to hold myself back. I wanted to sit down and type on a real typewriter so badly! But I behaved myself.
These typewriters were soon attended by three poets. They were part of a group called “Poems while you wait.” You give them a topic, they will write a poem. Since Ed and I had left our two daughters at home, they were my topic of choice.
