I recently earned an MFA and am working on a collection of stories, very slowly, and on a novel, maybe a tiny bit faster. I work as at an independent film company and have way too many random facts about movies in my brain. Sometimes it makes it difficult for other facts to enter.
Other books and stories, other authors. Because even though it's very frequently frustrating there's nothing quite like getting a scene or a character or a chapter right.
Amy Bloom. Alice Hoffman. Janet Finch. Pat Conroy. Andre Dubus. Lost Girls and Love Hotels. Michael Cunningham. Jo Anne Beard. Rosellen Brown. Anne Tyler. Barbara Kingsolver. Too many to name.

hi jenny, thanks so much for your note on girl. i really appreciate. now it's your turn: c'mon, give us somethin', pretty please.
For me BREAKFAST AT THE HOMESICK RESTAURANT was an incredible reading experience--one of those books where you don't want to be interrupted by any of the daily things you just want to get back to it by any means..and those sentences of hers are amazing feats of magic.
welcome, jenny, to this place--
ah, the world just got a little bit better. so, so glad you're here.
