I love writing prompts. They help kickstart my muse (sometimes). I sure would like to see my books in a library (sigh). Maybe some day.
In The Library
I was perusing my favorite genre one day, poring over the titles, looking at the covers. Maybe I would discover a new author. Hmmm. I had already read several books by John Grisham, James Scott Bell, Iris Johansen, and Mary Higgins Clark.
Oh, there’s an author I haven’t read before. The cover had a lot of blue in it (my favorite color) and it had an intriguing title: “Silent Night.” Okay, I know this is summer; but maybe it will get me to thinking about what to get for gifts this Christmas ahead of time, not waiting until the last minute. I love mystery/suspense/thriller but, as a Christian, I don’t want to read intimate love scenes, God’s name in vain, or vulgarity. For me, those things detract from the story. They are unnecessary. I read the blurb on the back. Yes, I am definitely going to read this book.
Maybe next year it will be my book on the library shelf. It could happen.
