This Is Me--2024 A to Z Theme

My A to Z Themes in the past have covered a range of topics and for 2024 the theme is a personal retrospective that I call "I Coulda Been" which is in reference to my job and career arc over my lifetime. I'll be looking at all sorts of occupations that I have done or could have done. Maybe you've done some of these too!

Summer Reading Perhaps? ( #IWSG )


Didn't think my quirky computer would let me post this month, but just at the last minute it decided to come back to life.  I think it's playing around with me....

August 4 question - What is your favorite writing craft book? Think of a book that every time you read it you learn something or you are inspired to write or try the new technique. And why?

          I have so many good writing craft books that I've read and probably more that I haven't. It's been years since I read a writing book and that was Ray Bradbury's Zen in the Art of Writing.  I seem to recall enjoying it, but now that I've got this one on my mind I'm going to add it to the books I'll be taking with me on our upcoming summer cross country road trip.

        Yes, I'm going to take a chance on travel in these times of COVID stupidity.  I hope the rest of the country has more sense about it than my state of California.  I'm looking forward to getting out of L.A. and retreating to something simpler and more peaceful in East Tennessee.

       I can see me now sitting beside the Little River in the Smokey Mountains reading that Ray Bradbury book again.  Maybe I'll learn something new or inspiring.  Maybe I'll even start writing again.  Mostly though I want to enjoy being with my family.  
        Hope you are having a wonderful summer.  Stay safe.  Stay well,  Stay sane.  And avoid the nonsense.
