Draft a post with three parts, each unrelated to the other, but create a common thread between them by including the same item — an object, a symbol, a place — in each part.
Well, it has been close to a week and I have read numerous books to enlighten and build my perspective on my ability to write.
It has been quoted that a good writer is also an avid reader, so I have been diligent in my reading. I have read several of the following books Adriana Trigiani’s Big Stone Gap, books 2-4, Eric Metaxas’s Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Historic Campaign to end slavery, John Grishm’s Gray Mountain, Oprah Winfrey’s, What I know For sure and one I keep close by Victoria Schmidt’s, 45 Master Characters revised edition.
I, know the list varies between many genre’s but I’m a book geek.
Now that it is April, and the Camp: National Novel Writing Month began on the first, I have begun a romance novel based in Southwest Florida. The outline and character points have been set up and I’m writing this post as a reward for completing the main points of the outline. Yeah me!
I’m on a writing schedule so I will finish with Langston Hughes’s iconic. , “A Dream Deferred.”
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
Like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
Like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
Keep reading and writing and follow your dreams.
