I was tagged by three people in the last few weeks for the ‘3 Quotes, 3 Days Challenge,’ but since I didn’t get to it right away, and I have so many to do… I’m combining the three tags and quotes, and doing it all in one day. I’m also taking this as an opportunity to reveal 3 random quotes from my upcoming novel, Father Figure, which will be published in just over one month. To see more about this book, read this post.
For anyone I nominate, you should do this tag 3 days in a row, not just one day. And you should choose other books you love, not the way I’m doing it! I’m just being a
difficult creative and selfish open-minded guy! LOL Thank you to the following 3 amazing bloggers for nominating me:
The Rules (that I’m not exactly following)
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
- Nominate three new bloggers each day
Day 1 Quote
- “He said you were young, but I didn’t expect a child. I ain’t gonna be no babysitter.” He faked a quick handshake, then palmed the side of his head to flatten out his hair. “You eighteen yet, sugar?”
- This was said to Amalia, an 18-year-old girl meeting someone new for the first time. It captures his character and voice in just a few simple words.
Day 2 Quote
- “Well, for one thing… you have a chance for a great future if you put your mind to it. Stop worrying about what other people think, say, or do. You have the power here. It’s your life. If you keep letting the unknown mysteries of the past color every aspect of your present, you’ll wake up one day in the future with nothing but regret over lost time.”
- This was said to Brianna, an 18-year-old girl searching for her father. It’s something we hear in different forms all the time, but when put together, it has a powerful impact on her.
Day 3 Quote
- “Everyone says you’re still a kid, you’re barely at the beginning of your future, or you’re still not ready to make decisions on your own. Yet, there was such an incredible amount of pressure to figure everything out before you graduated from high school—they want you to know exactly what college to select, how to be an adult who can make proper decisions, and which direction to lay out your entire life plan. Could making decisions too early in life lead normally sane and productive people to experience a mid-life crisis? If life were truly that easy, why had so many people fallen into depression, killed themselves, or turned to drugs and alcohol?”
- These were a few thoughts by a character trying to discover her identity while at the same time recognizing all the pressure being put on her to make a decision. For me, it captures who she is and relates her to every reader at some point in their lives.
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon. I write A LOT. I read A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at https://thisismytruthnow.com, where you’ll find the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge – words and humor. You can also find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
