Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought the book was charming. Daniel's strong feelings for Sky were adorable, buuuuuuuut the book would have been 20% cooler without all the cussing. I really did not like the swearing. It was distracting, and completely unnecessary... Read more of this blog post »

Buechner is giving a lecture about preaching, and describes his early "training".
I suppose as a preacher I got my first training in language and it’s always been terribly important to me and you pay a price for language being important to you. I’m going to talk about that later on. But, nonethele...Read more of this blog post »
My letters are for when I don’t want to be in love anymore. They’re for good-bye. Because after I write in my letter, I’m not longer consumed by my all-consuming love…My letters set me free. Or at least they’re supposed to.(x)

Right, so I thought it about time to set the facts straight just in case anyone is thinking Vikings is a correct portrayal of dear old Ragnar. (Not that I care, not with Travis Fimmel to rest my eyes on) First of all, I thought it might interest you to know that Ragnar Lodbrok in essence means Ra...Read more of this blog post »
“How do I tell my story?” Whether you watched the Bruce Jenner interview or not, there is something to be learned from his recent interview with Diane Sawyer. Admitting that he struggled with his gender identify for all of his life was quite a statement to make....Read more of this blog post »

You Tube is better than ever. They’ve opened up the floodgates with posting full-length films in order to compete with Netflix and other assorted cinema providers, and needless to say, everybody wins.

I wrote my first poem when I still lived in Moscow, which means I was younger than six — I remember nothing from it except that it was about a raven or blackbird or crow (whichever one means ворона) and that that’s a particularly funny thing since there’s no way a small Russian girl in the late 8...Read more of this blog post »
When I write a novel, I keep track of the timeline by putting specific dates to particular scenes, even if that information is never shared with the reader. Sometimes it helps because although the day or date isn’t mentioned, there might be some reference to past events and I need to know if that...Read more of this blog post »

Inspired by . . . a month in photos: April
