June IWSG and Leaving France


 June 6th question: What is harder for you to come up with, book titles or character names?

Titles for sure. Book titles, in my mind, need to speak about the subject of the book. To find one that does this and hooks the reader is very hard, almost as hard as the first sentence in the story!
As a reminder, because I need reminding every now and then...

 Purpose of IWSG: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time - and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

Please drop by their blogs and thank them for helping out!

 So June is here, come so quickly and bringing warmth and our leaving. We head home on the 21st of June, our daughter's birthday, and I am more than sad to go. I am also very, very grateful, happy, and honored to have had so much time in a country I dearly love. My french is possibly a bit better, and my joy in speaking it has blossomed even more.  I love the poetry of life in France, love learning its differences, nuances, and love that I definitely understand the language more, especially when watching TV, especially without subtitles. I won't even get started on the food.

So I leave with a bliss-filled heart, sad to leave, glad to have been here. I hope you enjoy these few images of France, I place I can't get enough of...
