Book friends and a few crushes (Slice 27 of 31)
Two Writing Teachers blog. The month of March the challenge is to write a blog post a day.
Today I had a little time to dig through my writer's notebook and look at some old posts from the summer for inspiration. I found a small portion at the end of a longer post about my reading life that inspired an idea. To see the post from earlier this year about my reading life you can go here.
I am playing with this idea and I keep thinking of other characters and situations I might add. I tried to keep it to characters from books I read as a child or teen. You will probably recognize most, but some are somewhat obscure.
When I Was Young
I drank cocoa on a dark and stormy night with Meg and Charles Wallace.
I spent summer afternoons sluething with Nancy and Trixie.
I bugged Beezus with Ramona.
I fell off the rooftop and into the Cuthbert's hearts with Anne.
I created a business with Claudia, Mary Anne, Stacey, Kristy and Dawn.
I traveled the Orient Express with Poirot.
I cried until my eyes could cry no more with Scarlett's heartbreak.
I played a game to win an inheritance with Turtle.
I tormented Peter with Fudge.
I explored the big woods and ran through the prairie with Laura.
I fell in love with more heroes than I can count.
I shrank with Treehorn.
I hoped that god was there with Margaret.
I grieved for Beth with Jo.
I made cranes with Sadako.
And I did it all without leaving the couch.
