If you’re searching for a new summer read, one need only Google the topic to find a plethora of choices. Today, I share five favorite not-so-ordinary summer lit choices, along with a snippet of why they made the cut.
Well, if you’re going to write a novel it might as well be brilliant, right? Dee Dee Parker and I sat under Susan May Warren’s teaching at Blue Ridge. It didn’t take long to realize her book, “How to Write a Brilliant Novel” would serve us well in our collaborative work.
Oh my! Talk about a fun read. With Buttercup, my 25th Wedding Anniversary gift (a 1963 Shasta Airflyte!), sitting in our backyard waiting for her maiden voyage we need all the help we can get. I can’t imagine being tutored by a more knowledgeable and amusing group of gals. Sisters on the Fly…Caravans, Campfires, and Tales from the Road by Irene Rawlings is a must read.
My name is Cathy Baker and I’m addicted to magazines. Four summer faves: Writer’s Forum (Brit lit) is slick, bright and informative. Mingle tugs at something God continues to stir in my heart. I can’t put my finger on it yet but I think it has to do with creating writer retreats or simply gathering women around my farm table. Stay tuned! Artful Blogging because I love to blog and Cottage & Bungalows since I love all things whitewashed.
