Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, guys! It’s the end of July, which to me means it’s Harry Potter’s birthday weekend. (Once a friend and I got an ice cream cake for July 31, and asked Dairy Queen to write “Happy Birthday Harry” on it in Gryffindor colors. Good times.) Before we head into Harry Potter weekend, here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer:

Reading: Murder on the Ballarat Train by Kerry Greenwood
Loved returning to Phryne’s adventures, and loved the intro of Jane and Ruth.

Writing: “I am the most pleasant mother pheasant plucker who ever plucked a mother pheasant.”
Got a chance to work in my favorite tongue twister to the new draft.

Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everyone! I saw Star Wars: the Force Awakens last night, which means my brain still isn’t quite awake today, but at least we’re heading into the weekend. Most of my writing time was outlining, so here’s a double dose of book reviews in fifteen words or fewer:

Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
Lovely, touching story of two friends at the edge of major life changes.

Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood
Whether in book or TV form, Phryne Fisher is my favorite detective. Yeah, I said it.
