"The thing about a spiral is, if you follow it inward, it never actually ends. It just keeps tightening, infinitely."

-- Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

Don't I know the unfortunate feeling of a "thought spiral" ?

• OK, this isn't an easy read for me; this book has several passages that remind me of how it feels INTERNALLY to be a diagnosed OCD sufferer half my life. It might be fiction -- but there's more truth in here than most people could imagine 😔 •

Enchanted_Bibliophile John Green actually based a lot of this book on his own experience with OCD. Know you're not alone 🌹 2d
Readage @Enchanted_Bibliophile I listened to a podcast a few months ago where he was interviewed, and he talked about his own struggles with OCD. It's true that we all have something to overcome in the game of life, but sometimes it feels like no one else will ever understand this particular strangeness. Thanks for reminding me that I'm not alone in the fight 😉 2d

Is anyone else doing nanowrimo? I‘m jb72 over there if anyone wants to send a buddy request. They‘ve changed their website and I‘m confused as hell, but I‘ll figure it out eventually. What are your goals? I‘m setting mine very low since I‘ve always faltered in this challenge. I think I‘m going to aim for approximately 300 words a day. Any writing apps you love?
@wanderinglynn I believe I found you and sent a request.

wanderinglynn I got your request! And I finally had some inspiration hit me last night so I‘m gearing up & ready to write on Friday! 📝 3w
jb72 @wanderinglynn that is wonderful! I attended a writing class yesterday and I had some inspiration too! I‘m super excited. Mine are in the form of poems though. 3w
wanderinglynn Poems sound awesome! 👍🏻 3w

jb72 @wanderinglynn Question: do you use notebook and pencil or a specific program on the computer to write? 3w
wanderinglynn Both. One year I wrote all by hand. My hand did not survive. 😂 So now I take my writing journal when I‘m on the go in case inspiration hits. Otherwise I type. I have used Word. It works okay, but I‘ve found I like Scrivener better because it‘s made for novel writing. I can keep notes, character references, outlines. It even has a cork board. 3w
wanderinglynn If you “win” NaNo, they‘ll send you a 50% off code for Scrivener. I think it costs $49, so $25 with the code. There‘s a 30-day free trial. So I‘d suggest using it starting Nov. 1 and if you hit 50k and like it, then you‘ll have the 50% off code. 😉 3w
jb72 @wanderinglynn thanks for the advice! I‘ve been toying with the idea of getting that program but I‘m not sure my computer can handle it. I‘m working on putting together a writing binder/journal now. 3w
TalecArashi Ooh, 300 words/day... that's a pace even I could handle, I think 😅 3w
TheHungryBookworms I'm lixa2019 a end you a request 2w

Heart-Shaped Box | Joe Hill
post image

• As if I don't already have enough King in my life right now, I'm also working my way through this book by Joe Hill, one of King's writer-sons. It's deeply entertaining thus far: creepy, even quite humorous at times. He's definitely got his dad's sense of humor even while telling a dark story. I'm enjoying it, much as I was enjoying "Horns" by Hill last year. •

• Ah, this book gives me the feel and flavor of the country I most want to visit someday: Italy!! My ancestors are from this beautiful country and I love reading about it, especially in fiction 😍 Take me away, Pat Conroy •

Ulysses | James Joyce

• Attempting this behemoth for the month of August with the "Old Books, New Readers" group on Goodreads. It helps to know you're not supposed to take this novel seriously. You're just supposed to enjoy the eccentricity of it...let's see if I can pull it off ?? •

After going to countless garage sales this weekend, you would think I would have added a few #novels to my #TBR pile. Unfortunately, the #book selections I stumbled upon were not of interest, for the most part. I did find these cool #oldbooks though. The frog book was 25 cents and the dog book was free!
