I’m remembering a time of PJs, cereal, toys, and settling down with a morning filled with cartoons. Flipping through the channels not wanting to miss a single cartoon. Parents would still be sleeping. I had the whole living room to myself, as if I was alone in the house…island…or castle…wherever my imagination took me.
It was a time of nothing scheduled, nothing planned, no running around to meet start up times or worry about the weather and whether or not to pack raingear. The only misfire of the morning was going with mom while she coached bowling. Sure, I bowled, too, but it wasn’t something I maintained. But, even then there were still cartoons or at least B-rated monster movies to watch when we got home.
Saturdays were structure-free.
I would read my way through three or four Nancy Drew or Hardy Boy books (sorry Lea – inside joke) in one weekend.
With that in mind…Welcome to MuseItUp’s newest weekly stop: Saturday Morning Musings.
We may not be bringing back cartoons and may not be able to lessen the family Saturday schedules; however, we are going to grab your attention and bring back reading marathons. Well, that’s our plan.
From here forward each Saturday our Middle Grade, Tween, YA, and even New YA authors will be visiting you bringing their unique perspective on their stories and genre. We’ll introduce you to new characters, fun adventures, and high emotions…think silly to heartbreaking.
Please join us next week as we introduce ourselves. And, if you have any musing topic or question, just give me a shout at MuseChrisChat@gmail.com with Saturday Morning Musings as the subject.
