Taking Time to Ponder?
These days, instead of actually writing, I'm thinking about what to write, taking an online writing course, and organizing half-written stories (some from years ago). I have a couple of projects coming up that I can't ignore--one with a deadline of July 15th and another (two stories) of August 31st, so I can't stay in this mode forever. I like to think it's part of my incubation period (or maybe cocooning) before a new burst of writing springs forward. Perhaps.
Meanwhile, here's a novel I've read recently and highly recommend:
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, St. Martin's Griffin, 2006.
And a quote from Flannery O'Connor that amuses me:
"Everywhere I go, I'm asked if I think universities stifle writers. My opinion is they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a best-seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher."
"A Good Man is Hard to Find"
