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.
