I have started a little tumblr to organize the bits that inspire my writing here. If you’re on tumblr, will you follow?

Also, have just started reading Patti Smith’s Woolgathering. Written twenty years ago when Patti was 45 and living with her children and husband outside of Detroit, Woolgathering is the sort of calm, quiet, concise work that settles the spirit as it is ingested. Patti is teaching me that it’s okay to be spare with your words, that a little can say a lot. I’ve been struggling with this in editing Men in Caves. For a while I’ve felt it needs to be longer to be better. Less is more sometimes. Novels can be as short and soft as a breeze and still be true.
