The SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column is a place at Shannon Muir’s author website open to interviews and guest posts from other authors. One thing Shannon firmly believes in for readers not only to learn about new books available, but about those who craft the tales behind them. As its name implies, SHANNON MUIR’S INFINITE HOUSE OF BOOKS weekly column features writers from all genres of fiction who want their potential audience to get to know them, and their works, better – and occasionally may offer features from Shannon herself that support readers to discover words.
DISCOVER WORDS… REFLECTIONS is a new monthly blog series, the first week of every month, that focuses on readers and the discovery of words. All blog posts written by Shannon Muir. This month shares her thoughts about songs and stories of the holidays, and what they evoke.
The holiday season just behind me, I couldn’t help but think about how words used in songs, stories, television specials, and films set the tone for the season. The images described, the sentiments conveyed, play a big role in defining that the holidays are in full swing. Alternatively, the absence of those songs and spoken words to complement those visuals make it clear that times have moved on and a new year has begun.
However, not all those words need be limited to a certain time of year. Wishing people well and sharing thoughts, blessings, and prayers are things people need all the time. With words, we have the power to take steps to start looking out for one another, and possibly even do more.
Until next month!
