Consider yourself warned. This reading journal is about to become a writing journal!
Here’s my MAGNA CARTA I (see No Plot? No Problem! for details) - a list of things I really like in books.
MAGNA CARTA I
Love that doesn’t get in the way of adventure
Love that isn’t too angsty
Love that is fun
Smart men who have principles
Misunderstood people (mostly because they’re too smart)
A few close friends
Cleverly hidden exposition
Intricate interweaving of mythology
Girls who are strong but not physically tough
What about you? What elements do you really like in your stories?

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
