Since I posted about what books I wanted to read in the year 2013, I’ve added to the stack.
I already had Bossypants on my list and I’ve started to read that. And, well, Tina Fey is just hilarious!
The three other ones I’ve listed and am currently reading along with Bossypants are:
Start: Jon Acuff: I have all of his other books, and have one on my reading list for this year. This is his new one. It’s informative and well, I really do want to punch fear in the face!
Bird by Bird: Anne Lamott: Lots of friends have read this book and enjoy Anne as an author, and now, me to! It’s a book on writing and life. Two things of which I adore.
Intentional Parenting: David Thomas, Sissy Goff: If you’ve never heard of this group from Daystar Counseling Ministries, please. Do it. Now. I have David’s other book, Wild Things, I swear he is like the Child Whisperer. Check him out!
Here’s the thing. I like funny things; stories, shows, I always see the laughter in most things. I am easily amused. I like to write. But, sometimes I wonder if I like the idea of writing, more so than actually starting it. And well, I’m in the thick of a season of parenting that makes my ears bleed, go cross-eyed and have momnesia, which will probably always stick with me. So, here’s my thought….
As I was looking at these four books that I’m currently reading, I’ve realized that they are more of a reference for me to Start (because I have such huge fears of starting anything!) Writing (which Anne has great instructions on) Funny (Tina is a mastermind of solid funny writings) Parenting (I need guidance on every level of my kids seasons and spurts they go through) stories.
So, here’s to another shot of keeping up with this blog, because we don’t have enough mommy bloggers in this world. Which is good and which makes me think “why would anyone want to read another mommy blog?” I don’t know why, but I want to stick with this. I can do this, right!!??
