These are my weekly blog memes. Each day has one (Sunday has two).

Monday: Monday’s First Sentence
Tuesday: Teaser Tuesday
Wednesday: Waiting on Wednesday
Thursday: First Chapter First Paragraphs Thursday Intros
Friday: Friday’s Page 69
Saturday: Cover Lover Saturday
Sunday: Weekly Quote & Sunday’s TBR Updates

NOTE: Around 2019 I switched around Thursday’s and Tuesday’s posts as the Monday and Tuesday posts were too close alike. So instead of Teaser Thursday it became Teaser Tuesday, and First Chapter First Paragraphs Tuesday Intros became First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros.

Suresh sipped at his tea. “What area of law did your originally want to practice in?”
“International humanitarian law. You?”
“Criminal law.”
We both fell silent as we reflected on how far we’d deviated from our ideals.

First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros ~ Into the Heartless Wood


I was born a tree. It was easier, then. All I needed was the earth and the wind and the rain. All I needed was the sunlight warm in my dappled leaves.
There was no fear, just growth. No wanting, just sky. No thirst, thirst, thrist.

Nobody wanted to the leave the Wonderland. They wanted to play Frolf with the world’s cutest and furriest caddie. It was amazing to watch the dog do the one thing he loved more than anything in the world: chase after a floating disc, acrobatically snag his target, and trot back triumphantly.
