Tuesday Twosome

I'm reading Diana Gabaldon's Drums of Autumn. This series is taken me forever to read, I do realize. But to be fair, its not because its boring. I love the books or I wouldn't be reading them a second time. But each book is over 1,000 pages long, and they are not "easy" reads. Plus I've slipped a few other books, including school, a few nonfiction, and I read the hunger games series over a course of 4 days.

Anyway, here are the two lines from Drums of Autumn:

She's said she was sure.

Roger lay in the dust of the road, bruised, filthy, and starving, with a womantrembling and weepingagainst his chest, now and then giving him a smallthump with her fist. He had never felt happier in his life.

I sadly have not written anything this week. I am playing with the idea of entering a contest for a short story that I've kept hidden away. No one's read it but me. I love the story but it needs a little bit of work. But we shall see.

I'm not posting on there today since I didn't have lines to contribute, but head over to http://womenofmystery.net for more Tuesday Twosomes....

Motivation Monday

May you have the hindsight to know where you've been the foresight to know
where you're going and the insight to know when you're going too far.

Motivation Monday

We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. ~Aristotle
I love to read quotes. Sometimes quotes really make me think, or really motivate me to do better than I have been doing. Lately, the ideas in my little pea brain have been more than a little lacking. After school and dealing with 3 kids now (I am babysitting) cleaning house and working full time, I don't have much left in the tank. Its pretty much Fire Bad. Tree pretty., in the thinking department. But I have been brainstorming ways to add content to my blog.
I like the idea of motivation monday. Every one needs a boost to get you going during the week, to remind you to stay on track and stay strong. So, for this monday I posted this quote. I found it appropriate, since writing for me has been rather daunting.
So, I post this for myself, but also for anyone else who needs a little extra motivation. Feel free to take what you need, and maybe send a little love my way and let me know what motivates you!
