More Socks
The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook - Lynne Vogel

I borrowed this book from the Mary L Cook Library in Waynesville and while I enjoyed it, it was more in-depth than I was prepared for. It covered how to dye the wool, how to make the yarn for socks and then went into different types of socks: basic, sandal/thong, and toes. While that proved fun, I was hoping for something different. It did have a lot of good information in it for making socks to fit different feet, measuring and how to figure stitches and also an afterthought heel.

Need Help to Start a Story?
The Writing Prompts Workbook, Grades 9-10: Story Starters for Journals, Assignments and More - Bryan Cohen

This book is for Grades 9-10. I mentioned that I homeschool and that I will have a 9th grader next year. I went in search of something that would excite my kids into writing. It has a little bit of everything for writing prompts. As I am writing this, I have assigned one of the prompts and the 2 younger girls are making it happen. It should prove to be a very interesting day! 


If you have a child that you are homeschooling and need writing prompts (for those teenagers), this is such fun!

The Essential Garden Design Workbook by Rosemary Alexander; Rachel Myers
The Essential Garden Design Workbook: Completely Revised and Expanded Third Edition - Rosemary Alexander,Rachel Myers

This book is filled with so much information. It is a wonderful way to plan not only your personal gardens but to do it on a professional level. A lot of the books is pointed towards the professional level but I was able to learn a whole lot on the personal level. There are forms in the books that can be used to work out your ideas and plans. There are also tons of tips.


I have never personally done a blueprint of my gardens I just plant things where I think they will look good. Sometimes it works out sometimes not so much. Now I have a better understanding of how and where to put the plants I want and have them actually grow.


I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Structuring Your Novel Workbook: Hands-On Help for Building Strong and Successful Stories
Structuring Your Novel Workbook: Hands-On Help for Building Strong and Successful Stories - K.M. Weiland This would make a great electronic fillable form. As it stands, I got the kindle version, which is fine, but lacks that satisfying, fill-it-in aspect. The paperback would be nice, but I'd likely need to buy one for every story. :) I do love all the directions and questions in it. It's like getting the anatomy of your story laid out in an easy to digest format. I feel the need to rearrange some of the items, though. I think this book blends really well with Randy Ingermanson's How to Write a Novel Using the Snowflake Method (Advanced Fiction Writing Book 1) - Start with the general idea, find the big plot points, then start filling in pinch points and hooks and foreshadowing and such. Might have to make my own electronic version of the workbook to help me set up plots. Excited to see what this does for my writing.

(if the 11am slot is full, the 1pm slot won't be used but if the 11am slot is empty, the 1pm slot will be used, so I can eat lunch!)
