Watching Glass Shatter – Feedback & Thoughts on Change Today and in the Past

Posted on

I met a new blogger this week who had provided some feedback and a fantastic review of my book, Watching Glass Shatter. A few days later, she surprised me with a really thoughtful and analytical set of questions about how some of the characters handled change in the book… in particular the growth of Olivia, in how she accepted all that happened around her, comparing it to how someone may have handled it 80 years earlier… These are the types of conversations that make me so happy I took a chance on writing a book and connecting with bloggers around the world. This is a must check-out post. I’m confident you’ll find someone new to follow. Thank you, Michelle @ ReadingMinds. Read more via Book Inspired Musings

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.
