First of all, I would like to congratulate myself because this is my 20th Blog. Who would have guessed I was that “fluent????!!!!” in writing. I have to really smile about that because I have struggled a lot trying to find things of interest for my readers. I don’t have a “topic” I read about like so many blogs. Mine just comes out of my head and backed by a few facts and figures.
It always surprises me by the time I have finished a blog that it is not quite what I intended when I started. You get the finished produce; I get all the dropped paragraphs and thoughts that run down the alley that have nothing to do with the finished produce.
I have read several books on writing as well as several blogs. I am also taking a writing course online with Jeff Goins (Tribewriters.com). Everything I have read and almost everything I have written, I have found that the finish produce is never the original intent of the piece. I have played around with my book idea, and each time I sit down to write on it my thoughts are headed in a different direction. At first that was very disheartening, but now I am beginning to realize that this is just the process.
At this point I have written 224 words, and none of it has anything to do with my title. So on to my original intended blog. (Laugh out loud or lol)
As you know I have committed myself to reading “all the Classics” before I die. If I stay committed to that journey, I will live to be very old or never die. As of yesterday morning, I had 821 Classic titles on my list too read. THEN, I got a Facebook message from Melanie Blake (A great New Hampshire friend.) with a website for http://www.abooklovers.com and their “2015 Reading Challenge.” I will list before the book list challenge. You get to pick the books you want to read, then check off the catalogue your book fits in.
I then got interested in what this website was and what else it had to offer. Oh my gosh, you will not believe this!!! I found “1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.”
