Up, Up, and Away!

At one time, I lived in an area where we'd occasionally see a colorful hot-air balloon. Everyone would stop what they were doing and gaze at the sight.

Sometimes I surf the Net, drifting through cyberspace until I reach a pleasant landing spot. Here are some of the websites I've found in my travels:

1. Edie Melson, at The Write Conversation, gives tips on how to keep your writing on track during the holidays.

2. I stayed on Edie's site, The Write Conversation, and found a great article on the correct usage for quotation marks. This one gets bookmarked on my computer!

3.Wendy Paine Miller, of Thoughts That Move, asks us why we read fiction.

I read fiction because I love a good story - one with engaging characters and a plot that encourages growth and morality.

Thanks for the links!

Happy weekend,

Story speaks to me.

I love fiction for all kinds of reasons - but read mostly for fun and joy and hope! :)

I read fiction for the thrill of it, the highs and lows, the romance of some stories, and to see how the author creates tension and then resolves it. Reading fiction is my escape, and can serve as hopeful food-for-thought.

Thanks for asking! Be well.
