Theme Thursdays [Women Relationships] – 12May11

Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”

This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

We just celebrated Mother’s day so this week’s theme had to be a celebration of women. Go ahead and post on ……..


Relation that one can have with a women like Mother, Aunt, Grandmother, Sister, Girlfriend etc


“That’s not true,” Glenda tried to lie. But really, if she cut the phone calls down to once a week and visits to once a month, her life would be much smoother. Glenda loved her mother, she really did. She just didn’t understand why loving her had to be hard. It didn’t matter when she called her mother or when she saw her, and it didn’t matter what she tried to talk about, her mother always found fault with it.
Taken from – “No Fear” by “Allie Harrison”
