WHAT I’M READING
I just finished up this disturbing, bizarre-o book called The Beat Generation, by Albert Zugsmith, which I found a few years ago while helping my dad clean out some old boxes. The date on the cover is 1965 and the book cost 25 cents. It’s so beat up that the pages were practically disintegrating as I turned them. Apparently the book is based on a movie. I think I’ll pass.
Next up is:
WHAT I’M WRITING
I write in slow motion, so it’s sorta pointless for me to aim at finishing an entire first draft by the end of the summer (I’m thinking it’ll be closer to Christmas), but I want to write a big chunk of it over the next few months.
I’m terrible at titles, otherwise I would share one. Right now I call it “Shannon,” after my main character.

My car is fixed.
I want to run around, shouting about it, but I’m afraid I’ll jinx myself, so I’ll say quietly:
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
One of my cousins just graduated college and he’s leaving soon to go teach English in China for a year. He’s an adventurous sort – he spent several semesters abroad in various countries and this is his latest endeavor.
I’m a homebody and quite happy to be that way, but I admire people like my cousin who boldly venture out into the world.
