5 Stars: Thoughts She Weaves (Amazon Giveaway Ends July 12 )
With my summer reading I have to balance from long books with many chapters that drag down a novel, short books that get to the point or a short book that is too short to have point, my mantra is maintaining reading as a euphoric experience rather than the feeling of being overwhelmed by accepting books to review. I haven't failed myself because my selections have been laser sharp. "Lachesis' Allotment: A Short Collection of Notes, Observations, Questions, and Thoughts" by Diana R.A. Morris as she correctly puts it weaves together a collection of short essays and short screenplays with insightfulness of fulfillment, dream chasing, the journey of immigrant parents and applications we can apply to our lives. Take a peek into Diana R.A. Morris's writer's mind you can collect ideas and writing structures for the writer in you.
Building a library of go-to books for writers when facing writer's block on the top of my list is "The War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle by Steven Pressfield and a few others I will read a few times a year. I can now add "Lachesis' Allotment: A Short Collection of Notes, Observations, Questions, and Thoughts" because of it's thought-provoking nature of friendship, one inquiry compose in this collection that I found intriguing was when do you realize that a relationship has to end. I return to the States from China for summer vacation I found myself analyzing long-term friendships wondering what the point is in sustaining them. Parts of Diana R.A. Morris screenplay touches on what happens when we lose touch and reconnect with someone, how doesn't always go as planned. It left me with a particular state of mind of being unsure; maybe I don't contact certain friends this time around and lay the blame on me living 8000 miles away. Chasing a dream is another topic Diana covers with tidbits of James Cameron's life in film vs. his naysayers, we face these people who tell us you can't, and some lives disprove the negative, it is always fascinating to read more importantly is to find a way to inject inspiration into our brain.
