So I thought I'd share not books, but my journals. Books would take all day and I'd like to read one. Another day I'll show you my dream bookcases and my favorite books! If you live near Annapolis, MD, a date at Barnes and Noble often requires two coffees. You up for it? Message me!
Ready? And please feel free to make comments below!
Books are akin to different worlds to me, where the bad guy doesn't always lose and the beginning sometimes starts in the middle. This is one of my many journals, filling with a story. When I was younger, I wrote a lot of fantasy, with sword-wielding heroes and kickass heroines and a dragon or two. Now, I'm compiling my life and the odd funny story I dreamed up into a beautiful collection of journals I've been gifted.
This is a stack of finished journals. When I say "finished", I don't mean I wrote until the last page. For me, every journal has a definitive end. It's not always happy, and sometimes the end makes no sense to anyone but me, but they're complete.
Lastly, if you can, treat yourself at least once to a luxe journal. My husband bought this on Etsy from Europe, and while it came way after Christmas (NOT the seller's fault...I've been in their country and I knew it would take a while), it's fantastic. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, Staples has come out with a new line of notebooks that are gorgeous.
I hope you'll write your story, be it fact or fiction. I want to leave my husband and son with some laughs, giggles, and a couple of "Mommmmmm!"s. (Those are the really good and unexpected stories.)
Why don't you start writing by leaving a comment? ;-)
