Updates from the writing life

Greetings to my followers! I'm sure that you have been wondering where I have gone to in these past months. It has been a journey of trial and error to adapt to this writing life. There are long days of doubt and short spurts of frenetic writing. I lack organization in time. The days seem too short to fit in all that I want to write, in all I have to say, but here I am writing, writing, writing.

I have also been reading fiendishly. Yes, the vocabulary is improving. Yes, I have a profound fondness for adverbs that I am trying to curb. The book, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger is my new favorite. AMAZING. Truly one of the best books I have read in the past few years. Ms. Niffenegger was just at Elliott Bay Book Company for a reading of her latest book, Her Fearful Symmetry. I got an autographed copy of it. I haven't started it, yet. I fear I am saving it like I would a box of chocolates. I missed seeing her in person by only a few days when I ventured out into the world to hear Allan Rinzler speak. He is a well-known editor out of New York City. His talk was inspiring about debut authors and still finding success in the ever-changing world of publishing. Think Amazaon Kindle and the Apple iPad and you will understand what I mean.

Well, enough about me, today. I must write, so maybe, someday, you can read it. Cheers!
