As Good as She Imagined: My Review

December 27, 2011

I think it’s safe to say that we all remember January 8, 2011. That day in Tucson, Arizona when a young girl named Christina-Taylor Green was to meet congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and was killed. I didn’t expect this book to give me much more insight on the incident than what the news had, but boy…was I wrong. The emotions within in the first chapter leaped out and grabbed me, compelling me to read on though I knew where each sentence would take me. I could hardly put this book down and I recommend it for everyone to read in their lifetime.

‘Tis Over, Wrimos!

December 1, 2011

NaNoWriMo 2011 has officially ended. My intended goal for this month was 60,000. Did I make it? No, but I did make 52,000 which I’m more than happy with. That’s 1,000 more words than last year! How did YOU do? Are congrats in order? At any rate, whether you made 50k or even 10k, congrats on your valiant effort this month, Wrimos!
