What's up Wednesday: Books!

Hello readers,

I finally read The Kite Runner! The descriptions and writing was beautiful.


I love how the title
means something in the story
shares a moment
a memory
the kite runner
you should see it
in mornings in Jenin.
I may have shed some tears
But I didn't cry
reading either one of their stories
I was sad and shocked
But I grew up
knowing the truth
knowing their stories
while others didn't
it is my burden and my duty
to know them.

What I'm Writing:

The short story idea is on hold. I got a new idea for a new story on the theme of hijab. I'm excited! I'm already at 2k. My goal is to have 10k by the end of this week.

What Else:

A month from today, Her Olives will have been published for a year!


Love and thank you, Fida

I hate reading stories that make me cry. Really. And I'm such a hormonal wreck right now, but I still want to read The Kite Runner. I'm going to have to check out that other one too...

Almost a year? That's amazingsauce. Way to go!

Good luck with your short stories and writing! I'm glad you liked The Kite Runner - I haven't read that one yet, but I did find a copy last month, and now I'm eager to start reading it. Just to find the time...

I haven't read The Kite Runner, but I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns with all my heart, and I love what you said about it. I hope you have a great week and that you hit that 10k easily!
