Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m especially psyched that it’s Friday because Monday is Patriot’s Day, aka Marathon Monday, and the Boston Marathon is my very favorite sports-related event. (Okay, pretty much the only sports event I care about.) Let’s get the weekend started with a little look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer.

ReadingBoxers & Saints by Gene Luen Yang
Beautifully constructed look at a dark moment in Chinese history. Honest but hopeful.

Writing: “Do you think you could fight a coyote?” “What do I look like, a roadrunner?”
Things happen on a road trip.

Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, guys! I kept thinking yesterday was Friday, so I’m glad to finally be here. Let’s start the weekend off with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or under.

ReadingBrown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
The kind of book that made me want a classroom to share it with.

Writing: “Literary conflicts are necessary to a narrative, but passion is what makes the struggles worthwhile.”
My latest post at the Ploughshares blog, about Parks and Rec and passion.
