It’s That Organizing my Writing Project

By Myrna CG Mibus / March 2, 2020

Not quite a year ago, I sat down with my writing teacher and friend, Kate Hopper, to talk about my writing goals and all that. I’ve long talked about writing a book – a memoir or collection of essays – but I’ve written on so many topics over the years – body image, flying, bicycling,…

Books Read in 2018

By Myrna CG Mibus / January 1, 2019

At the beginning of 2018 I created a visual “bookshelf” in my bullet journal to record the books I read and make some notes about them. Looking back at my year, assuming I actually recorded every book I read, I read 28 books (not counting children’s picture books and the like which I didn’t record).…

Educated - a memoir

Memoir Pick – Educated

By Myrna CG Mibus / December 19, 2018

One of the hottest memoirs of the year at Content Bookstore (and, I suspect, at bookstores all over the country) is Educated by Tara Westover. I read this book before it was published (I got an advance reader copy/ARC) and knew right away based on the amazing story and the quality of the writing that…

Journaling again

By Myrna CG Mibus / August 15, 2017

I recently purchased a soft cover Leuchtturn1917 journal in a lovely blue color. It has numbered pages that are dotted instead of lined (lined and unlined are available but I chose the dotted for the fun of it), lovely thick paper and some nice extras like two ribbon bookmarks, an index page and an elastic band…

Poetry Morning

By Myrna CG Mibus / April 9, 2017

The last several days have been full of many wonderful moments and also way too many tough ones. It’s life. It’s not always easy. I’m feeling overwhelmed. I am feeling like I am failing on several levels – parenting and being a kind spouse high on the list. But I am doing my best to stay task…

I was up way past my bedtime last night finishing an advance reader copy of Saints for All Occasions, a novel by J. Courtney Sullivan which will be on sale May 9, 2017. I confess, I stayed up past my bedtime reading this book the night before last, too. And was reading it at breakfast yesterday morning. And…
