Adventures With a Book Lover

Despite my love for cats, I adore birds. I just can’t put feeders out. That’s like saying, “Here, kitty, kitty! All you can eat buffet!” My Monet is a great hunter on her own, without my baiting traps for her.

So, I enjoy the birds that fly beyond her reach or call from barns, trees, and migration routes. She can’t get to those. In my car I keep a falling apart copy of a bird identification book. It’s amazing how many birds I can spot, research, and identify while my honey is driving over rivers and through woods. I’ve learned much about birds on our road trips.

After reading this post via Writers Rumpus, I discovered more bird books I need to read. Just in time for winter birding! I’m sending a big thank you to the authors, illustrators, and Kirsti Call (Writers Rumpus). Thank you!

Go check it out. You will learn a thing or three.

STORYSTORM 2018 Day 10: Heidi E. Y. Stemple Keeps Every Single One

Oh, I am totally on board with this! Keep every single idea! Some will be good, some not so good, some good now, others won’t be ready until years from now.

The big thing is to keep them all. Now. If I would take that next step and LOOK at my files of ideas…
