School's Out!

Those two little words can be met with a variety of reactions...

Kids are over-the-top excited to be free for the next three months.

Teachers can probably match that over-the-top feeling of freedom.

Parents, ah, well, you may be moaning and groaning trying to figure out what the heck to do with your kids for the next three months.

And for some people those simple words have no effect on or meaning in their lives whatsoever.

It's interesting how words can be interpreted differently by different people in different situations.

Writing and reading are no different. Characters in scenes may interpret a situation each in their own unique way, which lends itself perfectly for the conflict in the story. An author may write a scene with one intention in mind, but a reader may relate to it in an completely unique way. Different readers may come away from reading the same book with entirely dissimilar perspectives.

It's a good thing there is such a wide variety of genres, authors, and readers out there. It helps keep life interesting.

And, in case you were wondering, I fall into the teacher category. If you see me around, you'll probably notice a peaceful aura to my demeanor for the next couple of months!

Until next time,

Happy Reading!
