Top 10 Memoirs I REALLY Want to Read

Oh, My, Goodness. A few weeks back I happened to catch Mr. Wonderful crying on TV as he spoke about his dad and part of his life. LET ME REPEAT. I happened to catch Mr. Wonderful crying on TV! Really crying!!! I’m not sure if the clip was a Trick or Treat, but the snippet did prompt this post.

In addition to wanting to read Kevin O’Leary’s ‘Cold Hard Truth’, after having just finished reading the biography on Notable Author, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., I now have my literary radar out and about, hoping that Sports Journalist Jemele Hill, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Professional Tennis Player Serena Williams, Singer and Poet Jill Scott, Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay and Music Rapper and Actor Snoop Dogg pen unbeatable memoirs.

If you’re counting, that’s only seven memoirs. Welp, I’m still holding on tight to Ghandi, Mandela and Colin Powell’s memoirs and biographies… incidentally the same way I held off on reading Kurt Vonnegut’s biography…my thoughts here…which I just finished reading.

I mean, I love what exceptional memoirs (and books) do for my physical and mental well-being, but I am a creature of procrastination if I suspect to be weeks milking these meds.

At any rate, I now (REALLY) want to read more personal stories, in addition to those on my Top 10 (want-to-read) list. “Don’t tell me how to do it. Show me how you did it.” – Teaching a woman to eat for a lifetime.

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
