What I’ve Received: This weekend brought time with family; my husband and I went to his grandparents’ house and they lent me a pile of books. (You might remember a post I wrote titled Reading Over My Shoulder. In that post, I quoted from Gladys Hasty Carroll, the author of one the books Grammy lent me yesterday.)
What I’ve Given: We brought them a CD of contemporary arrangements of traditional Celtic music from Ireland and Scotland by William Coulter & Friends, and talked awhile, listening to the music. The acoustic guitars, bagpipe, and fiddle were so cheerful and uplifting; they loved it.
What I’ve Released: I gave away my fiction how to writing books in order to put aside what I learned in college about professors’ opinions of what makes good writing and to instead write from my heart and what I’d like to read.
