The musings of a young novelist

Reading, reading, reading

I stumbled across a few pictures of me reading several years ago. I started looking through some of our multiple photo libraries to find more.

Story behind this picture. I managed to read the first 12 Elsie Dinsmore books inside of two weeks when I was ten years old. I was literally reading in every single spare moment. My eyes were so sore and crossed that I couldn’t see five feet in front of my face without the world being blurry. Mom and Dad told me that I needed to go outside for awhile. So what did I do? Go outside, pull a chair onto the grass, and keep reading. Made sense to me. :)

If I’m trying to read (or if I’m reading too much and shirking from my other duties) I typically get a sick or sleepy baby thrown in my arms. (Age 10 above, age 13 below.)

Age 17. :) Reading is one of the best ways to pass time while RV traveling.

 

 

NaNoWriMo update: I’ve been able to keep up with my word count despite being extremely sick the first two days of NaNo. Finally, I’m feeling better and the words are flowing better. I didn’t realize how many words 50,000 really is. :)

  1. Fun pictures. :) If we have any of me reading, I’m always reading to someone, but I also loved reading. (Still do, I just don’t have as much time for it. :( )

    Way to go on keeping up with your goal for NaNo. It is fun when the words come easier because you’ve started to train your brain that way. :) Keep it up! And yes, 50,000 words is a lot. ;)

    Rosebud what a fun trip down memory lane. I do need to tell on you a bit. You haven’t changed a bit. You have loved books, being read to since you were 3 months old. Honestly. Mommy would sit you on her lap facing out so you could see the book and pictures as she would read to you. I don’t ever remember you getting fussy as long as you were being read to.
