When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen. But if you have not a pen, I suppose you must scratch any way you can. ~Samuel Lover, Handy Andy, 1842
My interview went well, one step closer to going back to school after a LONG absence. Kind of scary, but mostly exciting. I’m still reading Carolyn See’s book and loving it. She has a warm, conversational style and it’s very funny. So if you haven’t read it it’s worth a read. In the book she talks about keeping your writing life secret because no one wants to hear about your life as a writer. I could really relate to this, I think that’s why I like blogging, I can write about my favorite topic and only the people who are interested in writing are reading it. I don’t have to worry about boring my friends and family as I drone on about how much I love writing.
How do you scratch your writing itch?
