Confession: I often fantasize about the day when someone will interview me about the jobs I had before I became a successful writer.  Here’s a teaser - every time I get an interoffice envelope, I look at all the crossed-out names to see if it’s one I’ve gotten before. 

Of course, I’ll probably never have a line as good as this one from Strayed’s interview: “This is the main thing that I want in this interview, is to say that in the Days of Yore, girls, there was bush, and it was fun.”

Well, I also like to keep using my pencils until the sharpened part comes right up to the metal part of the eraser.  It feels so amazing when I get a long one again.

What I’m Reading

I finished Bohemian Girl by Terese Svoboda.  I read Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It by Gabor Mate, M.D. and The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.  Now I’m reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
