Today we’re going to address a topic that—GASP—I don’t believe we’ve ever covered in almost 800 blogs. Namely because it is a tricky one to address. We’re going to talk about description. For those who never use description or very sparse description? Don’t fret. That’s just your voice. Readers like me who looooove description will probably gravitate to other books and that is OKAY.
Personally, I’m not a fan of austere modern houses with stainless steel everything and weird chairs no human could sit in and most cats would avoid, but? There are plenty of people who dig it. I also don’t like a lot of knick-knacks and clutter. Makes me want to start cleaning.
Same with books. Not too little or too much. Yeah, I’m Literary Goldilocks.

I hope this Monday brings you lots of smiles. As I was searching for this week’s Monday Quote I wanted something a little different, and then I came across this quote by Phyllis Diller. She was a very funny woman, just thinking about her brought a smile to my lips, and so we have this week’s quote. I hope you all have lots of smiles in your life today and for the whole week. It costs nothing, but spreads joy wherever it goes.

To give fear a foothold, no matter how small, is to lose your dreams, hopes, desires. At the risk of sounding like a bad Direct TV commercial, don’t let fear rule your life. Don’t end up in a roadside ditch! Get out there and live.

There have been a lot of changes in my life lately–some public and some private. Because of that, when I saw this quote it really hit home. My life has changed so much in the last year because of a loving heart, and not just in the obvious ways. But by opening my heart to all of the possibilities and allowing them into my life it has become enriched by friends, family, my writing and of course by love. I’ve realized a few dreams and won some battles, and I’m looking forward to so much more. If knowledge is power than we can never have enough, can we?
Are there any quotes that really mean a lot to you? If you have one you’d like me to share here, please comment and let me know. I hope you all have a wonderful week and have enjoyed today’s quote.
