The Write Stuff




Handle With Care comes out today!!! Go get it!!! I'm getting it on Friday... AFTER my accounting midterm.  I am so excited.  I love reading Jodi Picoult's novels.  She is an amazing author.  She went to Princeton University, so clearly she's one smart cookie.

Now that I'm on the topic of writers: Ciaran Carson came and lectured my Humanities and Writing class.  He is a remarkable poet.  And he was an absolute riot.  He started by playing a song on a recorder.  Hello? Love him already.  He read quite a few poems.  My favorites were his alphabet poems because they were so creative.  He kept mentioning how he did his best work when he "smoked weed."  I am not kidding.  I think my professor almost died when he said it, but then he commented that she probably had too.  Check out some of his poems online.  They're really interesting.

Happy Reading!

  2. Being an avid reader, will follow your direction and purchase books. Not only do I love reading, I love writing and love writing poetry either serious or humorous! I keep most of my writings, many with my doodles! Have seriously thought of writing a book, however, have never succeeded past the name and dust cover picture. Hopefully all who follow your reading suggestions will keep a journal as a start for their life ahead. Keep reading, keep writing is my advice to everyone!!!
