Why do you write?

I write because the characters in my head and those I meet in my life demand to tell their story, in a poem, in prose, in a memoir, in a novel. They raise such a clatter, I have no choice.
Some are much ado about nothing. Others are quite satisfying.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Some of my favorite Poets:

Theodore Roethke

Stanley Kunitz

Bob Dylan

Charles Bukowski

Ruth Stone

Some of my favorite Writers

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Frank O'Conner

Anne Tyler

Annie Dillard

Maggie O'Farrell

you crack me up, sista.

Beate Sigriddaughter – Nov 07, 2011

Thank you for your fun comment on "Poem Containing 'So,' 'And,' 'Such.'"

Jack Swenson – Nov 07, 2011

Judith, thanks so much for your comment and fav for my silly story about the fanny-whacking kid. True story, too (blush).

Con Chapman – Sep 24, 2011

Judith--

Thanks for commenting. The stuff I write here is virtually unsaleable, so fictionaut readers never have to waste money on The New Yorker, etc.

Doug Bond – Feb 27, 2011

Judith...thanks for your wonderful comment, so glad "In The Beginning..." tickled a rib. Nice to meet you here.

J. Mykell Collinz – Feb 27, 2011
