While many days I am not especially proud to be an American (see, gun control, women’s rights, the environment, race relations), having a blue passport is a right not everyone is fortunate enough to have.
If you’re looking for inspiration, I’ve got a few that qualify. Life After Joe was published in 2015. The Line series: Complete Anthology takes place exclusively in the Fall (with The Line and A Fine Line qualifying as a book and its sequel, for bonus points).
Any ideas or suggestions for the rest of the challenge?
Good question, Art Challenge.
With a few exceptions, I think I was a pretty standard middle class kid in the 1980’s. In no particular order:
- My Little Ponies (and the little Pals that came with them)
- Notre Dame football
- Horseback riding (thanks, Mom and Dad!)
- Track (sprints and long jump, of all things)
- Writing in my journals
- Reading (Little House on the Prairie FTW)
What were you into?
It’s been awhile since I read the book, but it is a fantastic novel.
“I like that every page in every book can have a gem on it. It’s probably what I love most about writing—that words can be used in a way that’s like a child playing in a sandpit, rearranging things, swapping them around. They’re the best moments in a day of writing—when an image appears that you didn’t know would be there when you started work in the morning.”
– The Book Thief, Markus Zusak
