Writing Challenge - Day 3

Day Three - a book you love.

Spoiler warning(s)!

I'm a Catholic; have been my whole life. This book, while complete fiction, is a humorous and heartfelt way for me to fill in the "missing" years in the life of Jesus. I love it so much that I re-read it every year during Lent before Easter.

The entire HP series is basically tattooed on my soul but this one... This is the first book I can remember causing me actual physical pain. The sheer joy I felt when Harry had his chance at a real family with Sirius and then the absolutely heartache when that was taken away from him (and in OotP even more so!) It's the kind of soul crushing that stays with you forever. I get little heart squeezes when I think about this book.

The first time I read this was, I think, in eighth grade and it changed my life. This book paints a completely realistic picture of the hardships endured by everyday kids. You really feel Charlie's joy, anxiety, pain... I made all my friends read this book.

Writing Challenge - Day 2

Day Two: Something you feel strongly about.

Liars. My mother has literally said all my life that you go to hell for lying. And it is something I've taken to heart.

I have been lied to about big things on more than one occasion. Lies have broken me.

I don't understand how someone can lie about something so big and not feel bad at all about it.

Trust is a hard thing for me to give to people now.

But, liar... it takes one to know one.

Writing Challenge - Day 1

Day One: Five ways to win your heart.

1. Love my daughter. Love me. Love us as a unit.

2. Take me to a bookstore and tell me I can get whatever I want. Don't give me a time limit.

3. Go on an adventure with me.

4. Love my quirky traits. The obsessions: tea, books, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, the internet, etc. etc. etc.

5. Keep the smile on my face.
