This Monday I’ve decided to try something new. I’m a new follower of Rebeca’s blog, Books and Messy Buns. Today she has posted her Highlighted Monday Challenge and I’m going to join in on her literary fun today. The practice of highlighting good pieces of writing is all part of becoming a better writer so I am excited to try this out. Join me if you will!
Highlighted Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Rebeca at “Books and Messy Buns”. Anyone can join, you just have to do the following:
- Pick up the book you’re currenlty reading (be it a physical or eletronical copy)
- Find a sentence you like (because it’s funny or cute or mysterious or whatever you find interesting)
- Highlight the sentence
- Make a post in your own blog where you share your highlighted sentence and link back to the blog as the host
- Share the link to your post in the comments’ section here for the book community to see
