Do you need ideas to round off the summer?

School will be starting back soon. And your kids are getting bored. Time for more ideas.

I know the summer goes too fast for most moms and dads but you still have a few weeks left to encourage reading. And I’ve got a couple of suggestions.

My best memories as a kid were curling up with a good book during the summer.

So if you’re searching for ways to entertain those busy beavers at your house, check out Mundie Kids Childrens for great recommendations.

And don’t forget the best-underused resource is your local library. They have something for everyone.

Do you have a book to recommend?

How are you entertaining the young ones?

Can you write a kiss?

Romance writing is not my genre.

However, it’s good to step out of our comfort zone and stretch those writing muscles every now and then. After reading A Writer’s Path today I decided to try my hand at writing a kissing scene.

How would you write a kiss?

It’s not as easy as I thought. In fact I revised the tiny little piece below several times. I’d be embarrassed to give you the number.

Welcome Home

I watch, listen and wait. Outside, gravel crunches under tires, the car door slams, and his boots echo against the walk. My heart synchronizing with the pounding of his steps.

The door opens and I’m wrapped in his warm embrace. Nose to nose, heart to heart, I bask in his love. Our lips meet, and his kiss feeds my soul. At last, I can breathe. My joy, my life is home.

Thanks Ryan for the inspiration and the tips .

True Love Waits

Thanks to Lillie McFerrin Writes

She waited and listened, sitting in the same chair for hours. The road remained silent and empty, just like the last year of her life.

Another day gone, one day left, his letter said this week. Her hand trembled as she moved to close the window and shut out the cool night air.  In the distance, a cloud of dust clouded her vision and she ran to meet her love half-way.
