My excerpt this week will be from The Quilter's Legacy by Jennifer Chiaverini.

"Sylvia supposed all brides-to-be considered eloping at some point during the engagement, but she had never expected to feel that way herself, and certainly not a mere few weeks after agreeing to become Andrew's wife."

Well, obviously, this first sentence leaves the reader wanting to know why Sylvia would consider elopement so I think it is a good lead in.  I am over half done with this book so I know what is going on but I think this sentence does make you want to keep reading.  I have read several of the books in this series and they have all been good, this one is no different and I am enjoying it. I would recommend.
 Good Morning! Nothing Like  A Little Free Association at Dawn --

This is a meme I used to do with great regularity but have gotten away from it.  I decided to give it a go again this morning so -- here goes!

Unconscious Mutterings

Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.
That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.
"Rules are, there are no rules." There are no right or wrong answers. Don't limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head. AND you don't have to have your words up on Sunday. Take all week if you want! Read the FAQ for more information.
