Writer’s Workshop: Happy Black Friday Eve!

I used this the other day. Hope you don’t ind.

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! I had most of this written, and I managed to blow it all away, and apparently I can’t "undo" it, so…

We plan on eating around 4 PM. Mary’s planning on cooking a turkey breast in the slow cooker, with which we’ll have sweet potato casserole (complete with marshmallows), cranberry sauce that she made and canned (she’s gotten into canning), macaroni & cheese (we’re Southerners, it’s a vegetable), and either banana cream or multi-berry pie courtesy of Marie Callender. Notice no mention of green bean casserole…

Aside from that, it’ll be pretty much the same thing we do every day, anyway: sit around all day reading or playing with the computer, have dinner, watch Wheel Of Fortune, Jeopardy!, and reruns of The Andy Griffith Show, then I’ll have the excess lymph squeezed out of my leg.

I don’t like using the term "bucket list" for a list of objectives to be completed at the end of a period of time, because a bucket list originally meant "things you wnt to do before you ‘kick the bucket,’ (i.e. die)." That being said, I decided that I want to start reading again, because I’m tired of scrolling through Instagram and Reddit. I plan to start later today. Wish me luck…

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Sounds like you had a lovely dinner!! If you start reading again be sure to join Goodreads. It’s a fun way to track books you’ve read, currently are reading, or already read. You can also see friends reviews etc. It’s fun!


    1. I used to be a member, but finally gave it up because it looks at your Kindle library. Mary and I share the Kindle library, and roughly 95% of the books in it are ones she read, and Goodreads was asking me to rank all these romance novels that I had absolutely no interest in. Maybe I’ll find a work-around and try it again.


  2. Happy (day after) Thanksgiving! I’ve started reading more books too. Social media has become about as enticing as green bean casserole – okay once in a while, but not a steady diet of the stuff.


  3. Got a kick about your comment about the green bean casserole. It’s an acquired taste, John. Where’s the Connelly/Doyle blood in you?
