A little ramble on writing...

One of my oldest friends is a natural born storyteller, she is funny, sometimes biting but always entertaining. It seems to me that for her writing is as effortless as breathing, and as someone who has to write 3 drafts to get one coherent, semi-grammatical paragraph, I admit to being pea green with envy.

I think that good writing is a lot like good singing; with some training and and a lot of practice you can learn to carry a tune, but very few people are born with a tuned ear and a true voice. So I practice, practice, practice....

I've just discovered your blog and love it. I even went through all of the archived posts (a first for me). I do enjoy the posts about your book scouting adventures. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words, I'm currently submersed in a wonderful collection of books I've just received and plan to post a brag about them here as soon as I surface.
(and recover from the shock to my bank account!)
