Question: Do you like writing long or short reviews?
My response: Hmmm...good question. I would have to say somewhere in between. Being short and concise saves time for the reader and can be highly effective, but if the review is too short then as a writer I can't get my point across. I like to explain my reasons for liking or not liking books and movies without being too long-winded. I feel the same when I read reviews, so I guess I write what I like to read. I just did a word count on some of my reviews and the average length is about 600-700 words.
This reminds me of the 100-word story. I love the idea of this, but I have not yet mastered the art of being that concise and still effective.
1. On holidays, I usually have a second serving of all the high carb side dishes such as potatoes, mac and cheese, and dressing (or do you call it stuffing?). I don't eat like that on a regular basis, so I feel good about indulging on special occasions.
2. I am thankful for Bell and Fiona. Of course my gratitude list is endless, but they are new to me this year. They drive me crazy 😳, but I wouldn't want it any other way.
3. I would like to invite all of my fellow cozy mystery readers over for a feast. There are so many, I would have to rent a large hall or we could eat outside in a park during one of the warmer months. I think we would have some fun and lively discussions about all the cozies we've read, while indulging in our favorite dishes from some of the books. It would be pot luck, so everyone could bring their favorite dish or dishes. (I sincerely hope this happens someday.)
4. Everything I went through at work in 2009-2010 was a blessing in disguise.
A few weeks ago I told you that Bell likes to snuggle on my (their?) Snuggie blanket, but that Fiona clearly prefers to just sleep on the couch with no blanket. Well, Fiona must have read that blog post and decided she was going to prove me wrong. She now loves the Snuggie, too! Once in a while they snuggle on the Snuggie together, but mostly they prefer to take turns. Here is Fiona sleeping on it.
