Saturday Seven - June 8th 2019

Happy Saturday, what have you been up to this week? Here is a rundown of highlights for the week. I hope you find them useful in your life! My goal as a person and a writer are to always Pay-It-Forward, so please let me know how I can help you. YES, YOU!
Enjoy your weekend & this post! Amazing things to come!

What am I Reading? -  I have read so much in the past few months and are so behind on reviews! The goal is to post all of them this week! Be looking for reviews of The Surge by Donna Elliot, Gavin by Russell and Holly Kothe, Angel Eyes by William Worthy & The Mother of All Things by Gabriel Blake.

What am I Listening to? –  A lot of upbeat music. Black-Eyes Peas, Toby Keith, Fun, Kelly Clarkson, etc. Keeping me motivated!

What Quote am I pondering? –  Not really a quote, just a word. Something I have encountered in several random conversations this week. The word is Honor. It seems the weight of this word has lessened in the past century. Our current generation and our children do not seem to know the true meaning of the word, and this makes me sad. ~ Honour (or Honor) is the idea of a bond between an individual and a society as a quality of a person that is both of social teaching and of personal ethos, that manifests itself as a code of conduct, and has various elements such as valor, chivalry, honesty, and compassion.

What am I Researching? –  Oddly enough writing fight scenes. It is one of the facets of my writing I struggle with. Been interesting. Also been researching Grant money. Applied for an Awesome Grant – that is literally the name of it – to help with the launch of Writing Warriors United. We shall see, fingers crossed!

Yummy Meal of the Week – Butternut Squash Chili – Roasted butternut squash with black beans, corn, and taco seasoning. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Simple, fast, Yum!

What did I Learn? – I learned there is literally a plastic island the size of Texas in the middle of the ocean. So disturbing, right? Makes we think of Wall-E and his little compression boxes. You’d think we could find a use for plastic. Why can’t we build something? Genius brains! Get to work…please?

What am I Watching? –  I watched the Dark Knight with my son. Forgot how awesome this movie is and what a loss of a wonderful actor it marked. Heath Ledger as the Joker is – in my humble opinion—unmatched. The Chris Nolan series of Batman movies are my favorite! Always worth a re-visit when looking for something entertaining.
