Creative writing require much imagination to add details to an otherwise one dimensional story. But when faced with writer’s block – Photographs do help…
I was in Sonoma, California a few days ago and there I stumbled upon a brick and mortar bookstore. Naturally spending a good amount of time thumbing through all the paperback fiction and non on display. I honestly never pass up a bookstore no matter where I am or travel to.
So, of course, I needed to share this bit of find online – about a…well read for yourself.
While spending an afternoon in a public library, observing and researching, I wondered whether people read books, or have the attention span anymore to read an entire book. And oddly enough, this article captured my attention.
Happy Monday – As promised, I’m aiming to stay in touch at least once a week to see if we are on the same page (haha) or not – perhaps you want to share a fun fact, or an opinion about a book, a movie or travel destination you have recently experienced and recommend. In the meantime, here’s what I’m thinking about:
I apologize for neglecting to update to those interested in my whereabouts and ‘whatabouts’. But I have been extremely busy in finishing up my next book, among other writing obligations, which require time-consuming research. I know – not a good excuse, but for now there are not enough hours in the day, or days in the week for me, to effectively be everywhere. I do promise, however, that I will do my best to stay in touch more frequently.
So here’s an interesting topic – at least for me: Seven Books That Might Become Your Next Favorite Movie.
Maybe it should read: Seven Favorite Books That Might Become The Next Best Movies?

But this article talks about the types of books that could very well be turned into your next favorite movie. Let me know if you are familiar with any of the mentioned.
