#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 15 – A Book and a Mug

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 15 – A Book and a Mug

Truthfully, the devil in me wanted to post a mugshot, but I have yet to be tossed in jail, so I was lacking in that department. Goals . . . perhaps I should add it to the Vision Board thing.

Anyway, I took a photo of a mug (cup, not face) that I purchased at The King and I, which I saw at the Providence theater. It was flawless! I went with my mom and daughter (thanks, Mom!), and my daughter was awed by the beauty of the theater.

Being a kid who grew up with a playwright and actress for a mother, I was used to the theater, but my daughter – it was a totally new experience for her. Afterward, she talked about going again, and I hope to take her to see RENT at some point. If you ever have the chance, go see a play. It’s yet another way to tell a story and become lost in the vibrant world tucked into three hours at a theater.

Now, under my King and I mug, I stacked what I consider to be a MUST READ series for writers. Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone (The Grisha series) is truly some of the finest, most exquisite writing I have ever read. I consider them to be a critical, essential part of being a writer. After all, reading is how we learn our craft and hone our methods. Shadow and Bone is a cornerstone course in how to write and world-weave, and I refer to it frequently when teaching writing classes, participating in author panels, and visiting schools. #lbardugo
