Review: On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I would have given this five stars, however just as he says in his book he has a foul mouth. The stories he told and his advice on writing were good. My favorite book by Stephen King is "The Girl who Loved Tom Horton." a young girl gets lost in the woods while hiking with her mom and brother. Excellent writing.

Journal Pages

 Trying to mix it up by showing some of the drawing from my daily journal. Some days I draw what happen for the day and sometimes I just draw. When I don't have any inspiration I copy clipart drawing with my own twist. My journal entries are too private to share.


Daily Face; I skipped July 11th

I overlooked uploading July 11th.

You would think an empty nester would have more time! July 7th, 10th and 12th


You would think an empty nester would have more time to draw, paint and do whatever you like. However I am finding that is not the case. How was I ever able to manage my time better with four daughters?
So I still draw, but I don't seem to have time to post. I see more people giving up their blogs and just post to instagram. I'm not ready to do that.
Once more I'm giving it a go, Starting off with my Daily Calendar Drawings. I still like to play catch up.

Review: Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential

Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential by Barbara Oakley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Think your brain stops learning as you age, wrong. You can keep learning new things. Think you can't learn just because they teach everyone the same and you need something different, then you are labeled a failure, wrong. You can learn.
This was a very interesting book. I also learned about mooc's!
