What is your favorite writing saying?

Ooo. Sorry. Haven't got one. Perhaps I could make up one? "Just write. Lots."

What is your favorite book on writing?

Yikes! Dunno. Maybe the one I'm reading now: "Narrative Psychiatry: How Stories Can Shape Clinical Practice" by Bradley Lewis.

What do you write?

A lot of letters. Logical posts. Terse responses to editorials. Philosophical musings to weary friends. And one incoherent pile of rubbish they call a dissertation. (I do have a sense of humor that I use liberally when I write. Thanks heavens, or I would have already jumped out a window due to the above...)

What do you read?

Too much. Seriously. I'm currently deep in the diss, so everything I'm reading now has to do with writing about psychology. >beat< I know. Ironic. Off that topic, I'm reading Against the Gods (an older book about the history of financial risk). No pun intended, really...

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

When I am not fretting over the last paragraph I typed, I'm either cooking something with a lot of turmeric in it, or I'm knitting something large and fuzzy that I'll probably never wear---and that's if I ever finish it.


My name is Tamara, and I'd like to meet other writers in Philadelphia. Interests: non-fiction, memoir Hope to attend a meetup soon!
