Once a Librarian… #MFRWauthor 52-Week #Blog Challenge

2018 blog challenge buttonIt’s Week 4 in the 2018 #MFRWauthor 52-Week #Blog Challenge and the topic is: What I would do if I couldn’t be a writer.

Well, that’s easy. I’ve been a book junkie since childhood, so I’d probably be working part time at a local public library or at least volunteering there. And to paraphrase an old proverb: You can take the librarian out of the library, but… Well, you get it. I still visit the library to check out books for writing research, as well as for some pleasure reading. And if I weren’t writing, I might have time for more reading. My to read list is ridiculously long.

Last year I joined the local branch of AAUW, the American Association of University Women, and was immediately roped into doing publicity for them. If I weren’t working, I would happily avail myself of all the wonderful interest groups they have. As it is, I’m enjoying the International Interests group that studies foreign policy issues. Here a link to the AAUW branches, in case anyone is interested. It’s a wonderful organization with lots of lovely, intelligent women. I might learn to play Mah-Jong or brush up on my high school Spanish.

And of course, I would travel, as often as I could afford and manage. I have quite a wish list of places I’d like to see before I die.

And soon I’ll have this adorable little distraction underfoot. My niece and I were just approved to adopt a small female puppy. Is she cute or what?

What about you? What would you do if you had more time and enough money?

  1. I’m not sure if I could be a librarian… I may like talking too much. But I’m in total agreement about the TBR pile – somehow mine doesn’t get any smaller! Gorgeous puppy, I’m sure you’ll have your hands full and love it 🙂

  2. Aww, the puppy is adorable! I think it would be fun to work in a library. I do love the peace and quiet you find there. I’d have more time to travel and take pictures, and read if I couldn’t be a writer. Have fun with your puppy.

    • Yes, I would recommend AAUW, though local branches do vary. I suggest starting by attending a meeting and see what the group dynamics are like.
