Women and Words: Haikus are awesome?

August 26, 2018

Women and Words Overview 18-24 August 2018


Haiku (inspired by Ash Bartlett):

Going back to school:

fun, but still kind of scary

for parents like Jove


Andi is getting over a cold, but she persevered! And Jove’s sons are getting ready for school and they’re doing the orientation thing. Back to school time! Also, Jove likes posting lists of possible gifts for book readers/writers. Andi would like a dragon and Jove would like a unicorn, for future reference. Also, Andi and Jove are already planning the Hootenanny and Ash Bartlett has inspired communication via haiku.


18 Aug.: Women and Wordster Erin Saluta’s theme for “A Reader’s Perspective” this week is teachers! Post your fave books that address that in the comments!

Yes, there’s going to be a Hootenanny this year. Y’all should know about that by now, but for you newbies in the bunch, that’s the giant, massive, crazy holiday book giveaway that takes place 12-23 December. It’s about 20-30 books EACH DAY, friends. We’re getting the author sign-up sheet ready and we’ll let everybody know when we post it.

Also, if you’re going to do NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year, start thinking about that and your process! WOOO!
