Posts of the Week: 3.20.16-3.26.16

Wow, it’s been a while since I did one of these. As such, it’s going to be a bit of a mishmash on post dates, but all the posts will be great, I promise. :)

First Day of Spring by Mariella Hunt. In which she talks about her life lately, and the newness and activity that the coming of spring will bring.

Out of Comfort Zone: The Power of New Experiences by Shar. One of the most unique book reviews I’ve ever read. She also convinced me to (eventually) read Fahrenheit 451, something I had exactly zero intention of doing prior to reading her post.

How To Waste Being In College by Chard. Best way to “waste college” I’ve ever read. ;)

Writerly Bundle # 6 by Tori. One, provenance just sounds like a beautiful word. Two, the idea of these writerly bundles is really super cool. You should check ‘em out.

The Greatest Love Story by Koko. Sure, you’ve heard it before. But tomorrow’s Easter, so what better time to hear it again? Plus, Koko’s got sucha way with words, and she makes this post just incredible.

My High Standards: 10 Ways I Review Books by Kat. In which she breaks down her style for book reviewing in a way that I thought was really interesting. It’s always cool to see someone else’s process. :)

One of Those Bloggers by Heather. I love it when other bloggers talk about their struggles and insecurities. Sometimes, you just need to be reminded that your gauge of success shouldn’t be placed in views, comments, or “one of those bloggers” either.

How To Turn Any Book Into A “Movie” In Five Easy Steps by Alea. Lol, I love this post because I do this all the time.

Be Strong. Be a Penguin. by C. Lee Mckenzie. A very cool (yes, pun is intended) analogy for feminism--one that can also be applied to the many other things in our culture that could use a change.

Vision, also by Koko. I’ve talked about this before, but I often do have such a problem with perspective and with keeping my eyes on Him, and I just found this post very encouraging. :)

It’s Okay To Be Bad At Grammar, also by Alea. True, we should probably still try to learn good spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. But still, it’s nice to be reminded that, one, I’m not the only writer who’s not so great at this, and two, what defines me as a writer is my love for writing. And that’s it. :)

***
Well, that’s all for this week! Are the technical parts of writing your strong suit or do you struggle like Alea and I do? Do you have a specific process for reviewing books? What’s your favorite-sounding word, something that just rolls of the tongue so gorgeously, you can’t help using it whenever possible? Can’t wait to see you guys in the comments, and have a Happy Easter! :D

  1. Thank you for reminding me I need to read Shar's post—because I saw it and I thought about reading it and then I didn't. BUT NOW I SHALL, HA HA HA. Also, I think I will check out a few more, because they sound cool.
