I know you thought I disappeared from the blog for good! My deadline had to take precedence, and I’m still not finished with my work-in-progress, but I’ve missed my blog readers so here I am for the weekend! I’ve been dealing with deadlines, all sorts of great promotions for Necessary Lies (which just happens to be #5 on the Irish bestseller list this week! US release is September 3rd), packing to get out of town, and lightning taking out everything we depend on for our work and play (TV, Internet, phone, invisible fence and numerous other things yet to be discovered!). Therefore, this weekend’s topic is Resilience. I bet you all have a story of your own resilience . . . or perhaps someone else’s that’s inspired you. We’d love to hear it! I’ll use a random number generator to pick one of your comments to win an audio version of Necessary Lies on Monday.
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge. Happy writing!
