I write for the LA Times book blog, Jacket Copy, and review books. I'm either happily revising or trying to drown the novel I wrote in grad school, which I finished in May. I miss the Pittsburgh's $1.50 drafts of Yuengling.
Some writing is easy. Some writing is hard. Blogging, though, has done wonders for keeping my ass in the chair.
I've been loving Jacket Copy lately--went bonkers when you covered Dalkey Archive, appreciated your review of Robert Olen Butler's latest, and the library graffiti was great, too.
Thanks for the terrific post on Jacket Copy, Carolyn -- we really appreciate it. Love the photo you picked, as well!
