"This is to a book I may ever finish. It is one of the best books for learning how to write poetry. So I'm not quite sure how to fit it into this Goodreads format." Jun 12, 2015 05:25PM

 

Adriana's Recent Updates

Adriana Diaz added a status update: Been reading At Night We Walk in Circles by Daniel Alarcón. After 122 pages, I 'm giving it up. It's very very unusual for me to do this, but there are too many good books, and my time is precious. If after 122 pages I'm not engaged, or I don't care what happens to the characters, It's time to let go. Maybe I'll try another of his books sometime. He is a local, Latino writer. I want to support him.

I just finished this The Poisonwood Bible, so I imagine a good deal of thought is going to deepen these ideas. I'm a slow eater. I love to savor my food. In just that way, I'm not a fast reader. I love to relish the use of language. I mark sentences ...more

The Diamond Sutra and the Sutra of Hui-Neng by Hui-Neng

Adriana Diaz is on page 54 of 495 of The Sea, the Sea: The first twenty pages were engaging. A lot os info given to get to know this character; TMI if you know what I mean. And around page 50 I'm getting tired of him and his egotism. Thinking of giving it a hundred pages, and now on 54, there's good evidence of a ghost, a spirit, or a poltergeist, as he calls it. I'm sticking around. She's a beautiful writer.

Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

As a writer, I often wonder what it takes to write “a bestseller”. After reading Running with Scissors, I’m still wondering. All the excerpted raves (or were they ravings) from a dozen major newspapers on the jacket and inside, promised a hilariously ...more

I read this book years ago, but I go back to it very often. It's not just a good book about writing, it brings writing and life together into the pulsing creative process we are all living.
