I just realized this will be my 909th post, which means I'm only 91 away from the big 1,000. I should hit the magic number before winter, if I don't get too lazy. What should we do to celebrate when I get there? A book giveaway? Gift card? Any suggestions?
I'm looking for more guest bloggers for the open Thursdays in 2012. Check the schedule in my sidebar to see who's signed up so far. I like to feature writers who have a new book release, but those in between books are welcome too. I'm open to a lot of topics as long as they're related to writing and/or the writing life. If you click on my blog profile you'll find a link to my e-mail address.
I like the kind of peanut butter that is lightly salted, chunky, and that you have to stir before opening to mix the oil back into the rest of the good stuff.
Can't stand peanut butter that has sugar added.
Peanut butter is excellent on toasted whole wheat English muffins, plain rice cakes, and saltines.
Peanut butter and banana sandwiches are disgusting.
Peanut butter cookies are divine.
Also Peanut Butter Cups and all facsimiles thereof. When my kids were little I used to have them roll the peanut butter balls for me to dip in chocolate, but I had to stop making them because they were way too good. Makes my mouth water to think about it.
What I'm Reading Now
Yes, I'm on a roll. The book I started this week is You Came Back by Christopher Coake. This is the second book I've read this year about the death of a child. The other was Sea Change by Jeremy Page. It's a tough topic to read or write about, but both of these books are compelling if you can handle the characters' grief.
Now I'm off to other projects in the effort to shorten my To Do List. I hope you'll come back tomorrow for a guest post by Judy Dailey.
