#IWSG Nov 2018: Creativity in Life

It’s time for another Insecure Writer’s Support Group post to boost my confidence and encourage myself to engage with the writing community. The IWSG post on the first Wednesday of every month.

#TopTenTuesday: Libraries I’d Love to Visit

#TopTenTuesday: Libraries I’d Love to Visit

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. I love this week’s topic! I mean, who doesn’t love a good library? I’ve seen some stunning pictures of minimalist, modern libraries on Pinterest, but I have to say I prefer the gaudy, traditional libraries with gorgeous Baroque architecture. I imagine they would smell deliciously […]

Q & A with Professional Photographer Marina Art

Today I’m excited to share with you my interview with professional photographer Marina Art!

#TopTenTuesday: The Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

#TopTenTuesday: The Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. I have to admit, my attention span is pretty short these days so I don’t read huge novels very often. Books around 300-400 pages are ideal for me, so this list is made up of books with a page count of 500 or more. Needless to […]
