Pursuit of a Lifetime

As soon as I could read, I wanted to write; then I found out I wasn't the only person who ever felt that way. I use a quote in my signature line which says:

"Loving to read made me wish to write." (Eudora Welty).

One thing that's quite disturbing these days is the fact that working for a living and trying to accomplish my own goals in writing are preventing me from getting as much reading done as I'd like. Just a few days ago, I came up with at least a minor/temporary solution, and ordered an audiobook. Ellen Meister's "Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA." I can't wait to listen; Lisa Kudrow reads it. I'll get to audio-read while driving to Atlanta to catch a plane for my NY trip in a couple of weeks. Yippee!

btw, you can check out Ellen's blog:

I was looking at it and just a moment, and now I'm dying to figure out how to upload pictures and make this blog look visually appealing!

Ah well, can't build in a day. And luckily, this blog isn't Rome.

Here's a blog that I highly suggest! Click the link (on the right-hand side of the page) also and take a look at BluePrint Review itself. Dorothee Lang does a wonderful job in this artful mag containing evocative prose and poetry accompanied by soulful photographs.

Hello.

Here we go now. Test, test.


This blog is more or less a personal rambling in which I hope to introduce and promote my own works.

I also plan to include links and musings about inspiring or interesting literary snippets I might come across - and I urge anyone willing to participate (and further enlighten me in my quest here) to share comments on worthwhile, controversial, or otherwise noteworthy information or writerly gems as well!
