Friday Musings 1.2

coffee times coffee house
I feel another essay coming on soon but on what I’ve no idea. Or when, if we are being truthful. What does “soon” mean? Two days? A month? I hope I know soon (whatever that is),so that I can release whatever is trapped, but perhaps not knowing is half the fun.
Or the fear of not knowing what might come out. But then, fear is a part of being a writer.
And I am always terrified and enthralled with the next new thing.
Isn’t fear a part of it all?
Lately, I am stuck on reading and not so much on writing. This summer has been for blowing through novel after novel after novel. Right now, I am reading a book by Jeffrey Eugenides called The Marriage Plot. I am in love with it as much as some of my favorites. Maybe it will be a new favorite. I can see why it won a Pulitzer Prize.
And so I am going to run off and finish it, as it is literally eating me up with anticipation. Each page is an adventure to the extent that I go to sleep late and arise early.
And so that is the joy of a good story.

  • Earlier this year I read Eugenides' "Middlesex" and loved it! I have a copy of "The Marriage Plot" sitting on my shelf but I haven't yet started it. From "Middlesex" though, I can tell he has a way with grand scale storytelling and I can't wait to dig into his other books.

  • I totally relate to this! I'm usually way more of a writer but I've been reading so many books this summer x
