What is your favorite writing saying?

“The writer operates at a peculiar crossroads where time and place and eternity somehow meet. His problem is to find that location.” --Flannery O'Connor

What is your favorite book on writing?

Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott (Honestly, haven't read a lot of books about writing.)

What do you write?

Poetry, blog (essays)

What do you read?

Primarily fiction and poetry, a wide array.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

I have worked in nonprofits for years and have never used my English degree in real life; I feel like it's about time I did something about that.


I was an English major in college (emphasis in creative writing--poetry) and seriously miss discussing good literature and dissecting my writing with a smart crowd. I'm interested in meeting some literary-minded people.
