There are plot twists, adventure, heartbreak, and familial love in spades. A charming story written with wit and empathy. Great possibilities for nonfiction pairings abound for book clubs. A complex story told simply and honestly. She surprises the reader in every chapter with unexpected twists and turns. The only problem I had with this fascinating story is that it ended too soon. Fannie Flagg has crafted a love letter to the courageous women who accomplished the extraordinary on the homefront during World War II.
As she had explained to Mr. Nadleshaft, she was worried that the smaller birds were still not getting enough to eat. Every morning lately, the minute she filled her feeders, the larger, more aggressive blue jays would swoop in and scare the little birds all away. She noticed that the blue jays always ate the sunflower seeds first, and so tomorrow, she was going to try putting just plain sunflower seeds in her backyard feeders, and while the blue jays were busy eating them, she would run around the house as fast as she could and put the wild bird seed in the feeders in the front yard.
That way, her poor finches and titmice might be able to get a little something, at least. The bay was sparkling in the bright sun and already dotted with red, white, and blue sailboats headed out for the day. A few people fishing alongside the bridge waved as she passed by, and she smiled and waved back. She was almost to the other side when she suddenly began to experience some sort of a vague and unusual sense of well-being. And with good reason. Their only unmarried child now was their twenty-five-year-old son, Carter, who lived in Atlanta.
And some other poor God help her , beleaguered mother of the bride would be in charge of planning that happy occasion. She was almost giddy with relief. Of course, Sookie absolutely worshipped and adored her girls, but having to plan three large weddings in fewer than two years had been a grueling, never-ending, twenty-four-hours-a-day job, with all the bridal showers, picking out patterns, shopping, fittings, writing invitations, meeting with caterers, figuring out seating arrangements, ordering flowers, etc. And between dealing with out-of-town guests and new in-laws, figuring out where to put everyone, plus last-minute bridal hysteria, at this point, she was simply weddinged out.
Dee Dee had married, then promptly divorced. And after they had spent weeks returning all the wedding gifts, she had turned around and remarried the exact same husband. When she and Earle had married in , it had been just a typical church affair: But now everybody had to have some kind of a theme. Le Le and her groom wanted an entirely red and white wedding, including the invitations, food, drinks, and all the decorations, in honor of the University of Alabama football team.
The entire thing had just been excruciating. Hopefully, all that was behind her, and evidently not a minute too soon. Two days ago, when Ce Ce left for her honeymoon, Sookie had broken down and sobbed uncontrollably.

She knew she must be tired. At the reception, she had introduced a man to his own wife. The truth was, as sad as she was to see Ce Ce and James drive off, she had been secretly looking forward to going home, taking off all her clothes, and crawling into bed for about five years, but even that had been put on hold. But still, it had taken some effort.
We could be at war for all she knew. But now, she was actually going to be able to read an entire book again. She suddenly felt like doing the twist right there in the front seat, which only reminded her how long it had been since she and Earle had learned a new dance step. Why do we complain? Because we feel alone, but we are afraid of looking foolish or weak if we speak what is plainly in our heart. I only need to know that someone else has experienced this, that someone else cares.
We are afraid that we alone, afraid that events will not be favorable to us, afraid that Life is not what we believed it.
Judging People of the Past by Modern Morals. I have read many judgemental criticisms of people of the past, including writers and their characters, such as fantasy writers Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, and Jack Vance. If we judge people and characters of the past from our self-righteous 21st Century moral stance, we have to give up just about all heroes, including Gilgamesh, Lancelot, most of Shakespeare's heroes, Buddha who left his wife and responsibilities , and even Jesus who left is responsibilities and hung out with whores and.

My daily work on A Princess of Mars is yielding great results. I am now up to about sixteen compositions that will probably work out for inside illustrations. So why have I been remiss on keeping up with the blog, and even more, why am I not showing you the work?

The Making of a Princess of Mars, Week 7. The abstract drawing approach continues to yield results, and moves me ever closer to the specific feeling and style I desire for the book.

I worked in a smaller format frame, about nine by twelve inches, and this is what happened. After five or six attempts at drawing the Green Martians in the last few weeks, I finally nailed the essence of what I was trying.

The Trouble With Nipples. Last week I reached that moment of facing the dilemma all commercial artists must face or even fine artists if they wish to market their work. How to deal with female nipples in our Neo-Puritanical culture? Why A Princess of Mars? Why create a uniquely designed, fully illustrated version of Edgar Rice Burroughs' famous classic? Because it has never been done before! Many artists—before and after Frazetta—have created their own version of Burroughs' Mars, including recent comic book adaptations, but no one has cr.
Writer Aliette de Bodard recently posted on Uncanny Magazine about stories focusing too much on characters having or gaining agency control. I believe strongly in what she's saying. In my stories, the characters seldom achieve their goals because they are in control or because they learn to gain control. In fact, it's often the opposite: Episode 4 is now available!
