Friday Fare: 5/7/21

I made a huge scientific discovery earlier this week: Cookies taste better when you make them with bourbon. That’s huge, folks …


Listening: It’s been a bit since I’ve shared what I’ve been listening to. (Mostly because I’ve been listening to a lot of the same live Gordon Lightfoot and John Prine. Over and over again.) BUT!  BUT! I was working this past weekend and saw an interesting looking Tiny Desk (Home) Concert from NPR. Since NPR is always a good thing, I gave it a listen. It was immediately followed by another winner.

Reading: Why yes, I am still reading Story Genius by Lisa Cron. I might abandon it because it’s good, but it’s not helping me as I ramp up work on my next book.

I finished The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien and was kinda wrecked a bit afterwards. I also read, and immensely enjoyed, All is Not Lost by Shannon Kenny Carbonell. It’s an autobiography and it’s an interesting read about the intersection of motherhood and creativity. It was a bit of a balm considering what this past year has been like with the pandemic/constant togetherness.

Get vaxxed, wear a mask. Stay safe and well, friends!

– Shelley


What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
