On January 12th I was honored to post my first blog at the Bold Strokes Books author blog. It was such a great experience! Though I don’t have a book out yet, it was fun to see what readers and other authors thought about the blog. I chose to share my entry about bullying because it’s such an important topic for me.
I’ve been hard at work editing this three-day weekend. I had a breakthrough today and I think it’s going well. Tomorrow I have some more work to do, but it’s late, a new episode of Finding Bigfoot is on, and I have a 1939 edition of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens to read.
I haven’t read this book since my freshman year in high school, which was quite awhile ago. I challenged a friend to a read off, because she’s tried reading it since then but failed. So we’ll go through this journey together! If you’re wondering why this book of all the Dickens I could choose to read, it’s because lately I’ve thought a lot about Ms. Havisham. Why? Beats me! She just popped into my mind one day and won’t let go. Report on how my view of the novel has changed since that first reading will be up when I finish.
