I’ve got a post reading glow. What’s a post reading glow you ask? You know, it’s that feeling you get after reading a fabulous book, one that is so good you don’t want it to end. And this time I got it so bad that I am even finding it difficult to focus enough to be able to write.
The characters are swirling around in my head almost as if they have become my best friends. I want to ask them all sorts of questions. Why did you do that? How did you deal with all of that? Why didn’t you do that sooner? The author wrote crafted such well developed characters that it was easy for me to put myself into the shoes of the main characters and ask these questions. I simply don’t want to say good bye to these new friends.
My post reading glow might last another day or two until I dare pick up another book and feel ready to risk getting caught up in another set of character’s lives. Until then, I will relish the memories of new friends made in the pages of a book.
I am excited to be writing daily in the March Slice of Life Challenge as hosted by Two Writing Teachers. This marks the fifth year I have participated in the 31 day challenge, writing and sharing a blog post each day. I look forward to the growth in noticing the small moments in my life and capturing them on my blog. I know I will be a better teacher of writers because of this work.
