So I’ve always considered myself a ‘writer’ more than an artist, or a poet, or a novelist, or any other such distinction. Recently, that writing has taken the shape of a book type thing instead of a poem type thing. This is interesting to me. And also kind of soul consuming; I don’t seem capable of focusing on much else.
Alas, the world, pesky beast that it is, will not sit still as I so tell it to, thus my scattered attention is all I have to offer other pursuits right now.
One such pursuit? Being more active on Goodreads. I’m Wolfy on there (… because I love wolves. Cannot express that often enough, really.) Active readers, I’m hoping, become good writers. Sooo on Stevie’s suggestion, I’m going to start reviewing, in short little blurbs, all the books I read, maybe even going back and writing a little something something for all those books I’ve rated but not reviewed. This may proven a Herculean task…
My stats so far?
Yeah. This is a good idea.
“I believe that reading and writing are the most nourishing forms of meditation anyone has so far found. By reading the writings of the most interesting minds in history, we meditate with our own minds and theirs as well. This to me is a miracle.”
