I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

Michelle Griep Michelle Griep said: " Slogged about halfway through this one. Great writing, just happened to move on to something else, so apparently it didn't grab me at the time. I'm willing to give it a second look in the future, though, so that I can finally finish this epic tale. "

Michelle Griep Hey, it's my honor indeed to have you as a friend! Looking forward to peeking at what you're reading, my dear!

Kara thanks for adding me to your friend list, Michelle, blessings !!


message 4: by Lisa

Lisa Greetings! I feel like deja vu since I had just started to get ready for our interview. It's good to see you here. Did you read all the Mary Stewart books? I didn't think I was going to start plugging in everything I read, but every once in a while, I recall someone I loved and then have to sort through them. Am I about the only other person who has an actual copy of hte Areopagitica on her living room book shelf? We had to study it in college.

Lisa

Rebornbutterfly I have so many favorites! My constant favorite is Jane Austen. I haven't read any Georgette Heyer books, and i've been wanting to! which of hers would you recommend?


Michelle Griep Wow, thanks so much, Jane! That's great. I really appreciate it!
