I have to say that when I first started this blog, I never imagined that I’d still be posting on it almost 3 years later. I really thought it would be another one of my passing fads, and that once I got tired of it, it would just fade into oblivion. It hasn’t faded yet – and I still feel a pull to post at least a few times a week.
I took a writing class last weekend, and one of the things mentioned by the presenter was that in order to be successful at writing, a person needs to write every day and read every day. While I don’t post on this blog every day, I do think that every post I write helps sharpen my skills. At least, I hope they do. I definitely read every day.
For those of you into different books, not the standard fiction or non-fiction stuff, I would recommend Gregory Maguire’s Son of a Witch – it is the sequel to his bestselling Wicked. It’s not a super easy book to read, but it is a good one. There is now a third book out, about the cowardly lion, but I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. A little bird tells me it’s on its way out West as I type this 🙂
