04.07.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: I got up around 2:30 am and began writing. I did most of my work early and then began reading blogs. Here is what I managed to do today:

Here are some interesting A2Z posts that I read today:

And finally, a non-A2Zer post: This gorgeous Tritina by Judy @ Edwina’s Episodes

What I learned today: More of an observation… I’ve been re-watching all of the Batman movies and I’ve come to the following conclusions:

  • My favorite Bruce Wayne is Michael Keaton
  • My least favorite Bruce Wayne is George Clooney
  • My favorite Batman is Christian Bale
  • My least favorite Batman is Val Kilmer
  • Val Kilmer made an okay Bruce Wayne
  • George Clooney made an okay Batman
  • Of all of these my favorite will always be Michael Keaton, even though Christian Bale does a better Batman.
  • I have no opinion yet on Ben Affleck as I have not seen the new Batman Vs. Superman movie, but I doubt I will like him as I am not a Ben Affleck fan.

What I am most proud of today:  I read over 50 blog posts and commented

What did you do today, dear readers? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

Red Yellow Green #NaJoWriMo

For today’s journal entry, keep three short lists of what I call, reds, yellows and greens.The reds are things you need to stop doing in your life. The yellows are things you don’t need to stop or start doing, but things you need to be cautious about. And the greens are for things you need to start doing, or do more of for keeping yourself growing, taking care of yourself, and reaching your potentials.

Red Lights:

  1. Stop living with fear and doubt.
  2. Stop procrastinating on important projects
  3. Stop drinking so much caffeine

Yellow Lights:

  1. Getting too close to the wrong people
  2. Getting too caught up in perfectionism

Green Lights:

  1. Get more sleep
  2. Get better organized
  3. Meditate more often
  4. Eat healthier

#atozchallenge – William Faulkner Inspires Me


tumblr_nlkfje3u7n1rf1jvro1_1280When I was a young girl, I was obsessed with reading. We had a small, modest town library and I would spend hours in there choosing just the right books to bring home and devour. It was during one of these searches that I came across a book whose title appealed to me: As I Lay Dying. I had never heard of the author, William Faulkner, but the title alone decided my fate. I was fascinated by how it was written. I’d already been introduced to Stream of Conscious writing from reading Virginia Woolf (though I had no idea it was called that at the age of 11), so I was thrilled that this book was also written in that style. I was intrigued by the multiple narrators and the story of Addie Bundren. Thus began my love affair with William Faulkner’s work. I devoured The Sound and the Fury in one day, reading it long into the night. Next came Absalom, Absalom! read in about two days. I discovered a book of his short stories and a book of poetry. I wanted to absorb everything he’d ever written. And for the most part, I have. There are still a few obscure books that I haven’t been able to locate, but I still search for them everywhere. His writing style has greatly influenced my own. I do not copy his, but I definitely notice the influence. The following are some of my favorite quotes by W. Faulkner:

And my most favorite of all quotes because of his mention of bones (yes, it is one of my obsessions!):


Interesting fact: Two of his works, A Fable (1954) and his last novel The Reivers (1962), won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
