Life According to Literature (2021)

Saw this on Paula Light’s website, My Book Life, and thought I’d give it a try. Original challenge is linked here.

(THE RULES: Using only books you have read during the last year (2021), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. These answers don’t have to be true, but they just need to make (some kind of) sense!  I’ll do my best.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
