IWSG: July 2022

 Another month has flown by and it's time for the monthly IWSG bloghop. Thank you to the IWSG admins and our founder Alex J. Cavanaugh. Please see the entire list of blog participating on this list.

This month's optional question: If you could live in any book world, which one would you choose?

LOL. Most of the books I read are set in worlds at war or medieval mysteries or fantasies. I love reading about them, but I don't want to live there! I don't want to live where there is no running water or central air or where women are second-class citizens and die in childbirth very often. I would love to live in a peaceful, futuristic world though that might make a dull book, it would be great to live in. I want to travel through space and see what's out there! I guess I would like to live in Star Trek's world without the conflicts.

I would like to thank all of you who read my book, The Keepers of Sulbreth, for the IWSG Goodreads Book Club. I'm so honored to have been featured for this book of my heart.

I'm still writing though not as much as I would like. I'm planning my daughter's wedding reception. She and her wife eloped in May but now we're having a small local gathering. Seems there's always something more that needs doing.

I enjoyed the latest season of The Umbrella Academy. Not my favorite but okay. Stranger Things held my interest though I don't think any season has been as good as the first one. I watched The Terminal List on Prime. Definitely not light fare. I stopped watching The Boys. It seemed like each episode was trying to outdo the previous in grossness.

The warm weather has been great for walking and swimming. I love the heat as long as I can jump in the pool afterward. I've put some traveling plans on hold while I hope for gas prices to regain some sanity. Not entirely hopeful that will happen soon. So, I might spend my summer writing, walking, and swimming. Not too bad.

Is there a literary world you'd like to live in? Does your mind work creatively while you exercise? Any travel plans?
