 Sorry I have been away...knee deep in reading the above
for a writer's workshop that I will be attending for a whole week
..a whole week of immersion in writing
My eyeballs are about to fall out, but I must finish them all
Interesting writer...not sure he would make it now
not sure he would be read at all if it weren't for required reading
but I have to say I am finding the structure of his novels
very fascinating.....
and I haven't cheated by watching the movies
a movie could never capture the writing
I am slowly becoming interested in this man
Need to read The Infidels after this workshop
I have also been on a low carb eating plan this past week
don't even look at me crossways in the morning
but I need to button those capris
Do I have my priorities right
or what?
I finished my short story that tiptoed into a darkness
and submitted it for critique
...I wish I could write like Flannery O'Connor
then there'd be no problem
Oh well...back to reading "Crack Up"

  11. Hi Suz,
    Wow, how inspiring! I have always dreamed about writing, of course I never persued it...and hence my blog...LOL!
    Lots of hugs,

  12. i used to attend a writers workshop for years...this looks great...i LOVE anything to do with reading and writing as well...

    happy to stop by today and happy to see you at farmhouse kitchen

    kary and teddy

  13. The writing workshop sounds like SO much fun!!

    It will be a challenge and an adventure :)

    Is this your first one? I doubt it will be your last!

  14. Suz, I haven't commented much, (haven't been writing much, either) but I have in fact been following your adventures and oh, The Great Gatsby is my favorite novel, and that's saying a lot coming from an English teacher who's had to teach it a gazillion times. Your interest seems a bit tepid, but I know you'll come to appreciate the lyricism of his prose and yes, the structure, the imagery, the tragedy, the irony, the character development... okay I'll stop!

    "THERE was music from my neighbor's house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars" (Fitzgerald 43).

    P.S. Flannery O'Connor rules!!!
