Writing about Decisions, Craziness

Isabel Allende's "The House of Spirits"

The House of Spirits

Life has gone quite crazy lately, what with one thing or the other. While I try to return a semblance of order to things, books keep me company.

I talked about “The Constant Princess” by Philippa Gregory yesterday, and today I’ve decided to pick up Isabel Allende’s House of Spirits and give it a go whenever I have a break.

I’ve watched the movie, so I know the basic story, but I can’t resist the idea of Allende’s writing.

It is still dark out side as I write and is beginning to clear up little by little. A walk may just be what the doctor ordered.

What about you? How is/was your day? Week?

    Things are interesting here, to say the least. I’m very grateful in the midst of your madness you found time to proofread for me. I didn’t take all the suggestion (writer’s license, 😉 ) but a lot of them were really helpful to me. Thanks for doing that.

    And I hope things get better. Let me know how that book is; I’ve never heard of it but maybe I’ll check to see if I can find a copy at my library. 🙂

    Hugs from your overseas friend.
