Escapist Coloring


I thought I already did a coloring for this month. But I don’t see it reflected on the coloring page so here goes another. Here is the picture before:

And here’s the finished product. I do love coloring. I’m always surprised at how much fun I have while doing it. I need to make it a habit!

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for the Escapist Coloring Club!

Zero


I can’t believe that I actually made it to the end of the alphabet! Especially since I did it illegally (I never signed up here: A to Z Challenge ) and I was rarely on track. But all letters were used even if not so creatively. I even got kicked out of Linda G. Hill’s cell I think thanks to John Holton. It has been fun, and best of all it kept me blogging through the month.

Isn’t it nice to tick things off the list, finish something? This month I can say I have hit the blast-off zero on several levels. Tomorrow I will have finished my first full edit of my first book. There is still a lot of rewriting that needs to be done, but at least it isn’t as lame as it would have been previously. This I was encouraged by CampNaNo. I had set my goal to edit two hours a day with a total of 60 hours. I didn’t know it would take less than that to get through the whole book and I have two chapters to go through tomorrow. Woo-hoo!

As soon as I’ve finished writing this blog I will post my newest color escape. Boom!

The feeling of accomplishment is swelling my chest!

Oh, and I finally got to watch Hidden Figures which is why I chose the above picture and didn’t go with Zombies for the final Z.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Our little library now has books on CDs. I saw them the last time I was there and decided I should grab a couple to encourage this new accommodation.

This was one I remember hearing about so I thought I couldn’t go wrong. The librarian said I shouldn’t read it at night, but that is the only time I can sink my teeth into a book.

I realized early on why I don’t like reading with only the audio version. There is no way to look at words or pages to clarify what I just heard. And this book has many points of view incorporating second-person on a couple of them. It didn’t quite work for me. And the actors playing the different characters weren’t always the best, I didn’t think.

This topic is worth talking about with the ‘Me, too’ movement. It shows the other side of the rape story. I don’t think it should send us back to women not being heard. But to remind us that there are those women who don’t care who they ruin with accusations. The main male character wasn’t on a power trip or trying to hurt someone. This story does need to be told. It needs to be read.

But I don’t have to like it. I didn’t hate it either.
