Victorious Closure

Shakespeare is my love. And though I’ve read and enjoyed his sonnets, I had never managed to read his full plays. I read the abridged editions, yes, but the original was always beyond my ability.

An then, it changed. With some encouragement, I tried reading Hamlet — the full play. I loved every bit of it. By the time I finished reading it, I grew hungry for more.

It felt great to accomplish such a big feat and I will cherish the thrill forever. Here’s my victory: reading a complete Shakespeare play.


National Blog Posting Month – Day 15.

I’ve taken a break today from my schedule of publishing one chapter a day from my NaNoWriMo novel from two years ago. I’ll publish chapter 14 tomorrow.

  1. and what a Victory that is! I hope one day to succeed in this same victory! A while ago I downloaded some of Shakespeare’s insults for my 11 year old daughter, we had fun pouring over such wonderful phrases as “you scullion! You rampallian! You fustilarian! I’ll tickle your catastrophe!”..” or
    “A most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality.”
    Nobody does insults like Shakespeare!
    Love your photo too. 🙂

    1. Right you are! Shakespeare’s insults crack me up every time I read them. Incredible, the way he plays words. Here’s something I loved: “You should be women, and yet your beards forbid me to interpret that you are so.” – Macbeth.
      I’ve saved a collection too, should post them sometime.
      Also, thanks so much for dropping by! 🙂
