Blood, Sweat, and Tears

"Writing styles are not easy to come by, they are forged by fire, they are cooled by the tears of ones own eyes, and they are oiled by the authors own blood; sheathing that style is an entirely new level of pain." - Shy willow

What's Shy Reading? The Secret Garden

 I have finally closed a chapter in my life that has caused me grief since I was a small child! I finally finished a book I started SEVERAL years ago. Why this was such an accomplishment I have no idea, but here goes. My lovely mom purchased for me when I was a child the most beloved children’s’ classic The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. 

I attempted to read the treasure and could not work my way through the Yorkshire talk, so in frustration I decided that starting over might help me to better understand what the heck it was that I was reading. Sure enough I started over, and nope it did not do the trick, I was left with broken dreams and unfinished business. Life goes by fast and anytime I looked at the book I wanted to start it over, but I could not get past that frustrated feeling I held so near me of not being able to get into a book.

Thanks for Stopping By
