The Journey

writers-island-badge.jpg

The prompt for this week: The Journey

Reading the end of a book first is like arriving at your destination without experiencing the journey. I'd rather experience the whole emotion the book may bring. The tears and the laughter, I want the whole shebang. Thus, no one will ever see me reading the last part of a book to get an idea of how the story ends. I don’t want to deprive myself of the beautiful journey where the book will take me.

I hope you feel the same. Happy reading!

A great take on the prompt. I think it's sacriligeous to read endings first, so I'm with you!

LOL I had a smile with this write. I am an end of the book reader. I am an I want to know the conclusion, then the thrill of getting there for me is exciting. I like to see how it all comes to that conclusion and why they ended it that way. I know I cheat by my poets mind and writers heart usually starts with the ending first.
I enjoyed reading your thoughts!!!

Princesses Can Be Bullies Too

People think of bullies as someone who are bigger, older. Someone who can physically hurt another and uses that power to bully someone else...
