The point I think is not to let the idea of "writer's block" be an excuse for not working. It helps to remind myself that pediatricians or firemen don't get to say anything like: "Gee, I'm just not feeling it today. Come back tomorrow with your problem." (less)

[image error]In the summer when I was sixteen, I read great gobs of Anna Karenina with my feet over my head. I had been somberly informed that you retain information better if there is more blood in your brain. This seemed reasonable, so I lay in bed with my feet up against the wall. If the novel hadn’t been so fine, I might have been derailed by the fatigue of holding a big book up in the air...

Topics Mentioning This Author

“We kissed. It was the bright sweetness of lemons, the warmth of fresh bread and the comfort of home after a long voyage.p. 305”
Schoenewaldt

“....Yes, San Francisco was far from all I longed to forget. But I was weary of the flat earth, the heat of summer and hard press of winter cold. The etchings in "Scribners" made me yearn for the loop and roll of land. I wanted to break free of the squeeze of buildings and streets running endlessly out to the horizon. p. 254”

Pamela Schoenewaldt Writers and readers, consider sharing your book/s with inmates, Prison libraries are underfunded; often inmates can only receive 4 approved books/month; many can't afford any. Sandi Burch's Books Behind Walls program handles paperwork for Georgia inmates. She contacted me through Goodreads and I'll be sending her a copy of SWIMMING IN THE MOON. If you have books to share, send them to Sandi Burch, 2142 Butler Ferry Rd, Bainbridge GA 39817. I'm sure other states have similar programs.
