I know that I have been pretty non-existent here in the blogosphere. I am terrible. I have been crazy in my family life and I am still the little brain trapped with 1,000 ideas that come flying out in all directions and I am constantly grasping at fragments and echoes as they come out but can't always articulate it into the words that I need. I want to thank each and every one of you for your encouragement and support through the years. It is nice to converse with others that sometimes face the same challenges day in and day out. I am so happy to be a part of your community. Perhaps throughout this year there will be interesting things for me to throw out in to the zone.
My life as a wanna be novelist pitted against the challenges of work, family and personal reflection. I can truly be my own worst enemy. Argh!
Thought of the moment....
No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Review: Let the Sky Fall
Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Shannon's was one of the very first blogs that I started to follow when I found my way into the writing circle. She is amazing and it shows in her writing. I really like the fresh story line and tremendous character conflicts that rage among the pages of this book. Audra is so conflicted by her past that she is doing everything that she can to make sure that Vane is protected at all times. She avoids her true feelings that she harbors for him for the role of his guardian and her pledge to the Gale.
Vane has other ideas. When he discovers who he is and what he can do, there is no stopping him. He wants Audra and goes to extremes to show her how willing he is to fight for their love. He knows that she is resisting, but is hoping that he can break through to her in time. Even though events come to light that are not the most pleasant, Vane is set on one thing. Getting the girl.
Highly recommended for YA readers.
