Until I feel horribly guilty. It's when I remind myself that I have the power to revise or delete. And give myself the freedom to write something, ANYTHING that's not even good. That's when I can start to fill the white space.
Sometimes those original passages are very notes-y, but after reading and re-reading, I can flesh out the initial thoughts. Then those thoughts become scenes. And those scenes become pages.(less)

The Non-Love Ending

Great reading by Tom Perrotta at Skylight Books in LA. Can’t wait to read Mrs. Fletcher which was supposed to be called The MILF so...double interested. Because anything MILF-curious is encouraging.

I asked him if he had beef with Read more of this blog post »

Class by Lucinda Rosenfeld
"I have no earthly right to weigh in on a satirical novel about child rearing in an urban liberal elite bubble. I don’t have children. I don’t live in Brooklyn. I may be liberal by some measurements, and maybe even elite, depending on what definition " Read more of this review »
K.K. Wootton and 93 other people liked Elyse Walters's review of Class:
Class by Lucinda Rosenfeld
"This book has so much potential in my opinion...
This satire is a serious topic—an enormous subject
