Pool Party

How comfy is your lounge chair?

Hello Pool Partiers!

How are things going? Have you found your new fandom? We are a week in now (who let that happen)!

Picture this - You're sitting by the pool. It's nice out, not too hot, not too humid. The yard work is done, and it's time for alone time, but you aren't driven with the urge to be in the water yet. That lounger is very comfortable. So you pick up your summer read.

Let's take some time and list off some fandoms from the written word, maybe something you read lately ended ... not quite the way you wanted. Or maybe it ended so well, that you just want more!

My plans are to crack open Faith: Taking flight this weekend. And I'm hoping it will inspire some words in my brain. What have you read lately that is making you want to be creative?
