Friday Things

Happy Friday! I love summer. It’s the season of getting invited to go beautiful places for free. We spent last weekend at Lake Sacandaga at our friends’ parents’ cabin, and this weekend we’re headed down to Long Beach Island to stay at my boyfriend’s aunt’s beach house. I’m looking forward to a few days of reading and relaxation. But first, three things that made my week:

  1. In my writing class, I was accused of being “too coy” with the plot of my novel. There’s a delicate balance between hinting at a mystery to create tension, and frustrating your readers by not telling them enough. This post does a really good job explaining how to toe that line.

2. Five life lessons from five years traveling the world.

3. Finally sundresses for the rest of us 🙂

Reading: Still this. It’s long. But good.

Watching: Friends on Netflix as I get ready in the morning. Laughing is such a great start to the day.

Listening to: Mat Kearney. It’s good stuff.
