I went to see Laura Moriarty (The Chaperone) at The Bookworm bookstore Tuesday night. I was really disappointed with the turnout but so happy that I had taken the time to go see her. She really is great...so great that she inspired me to start writing again. This weekend my first article in over a year was posted at Omaha.net . Next up, it's time to finally get my writing center set up in our guest room.
I also got an email this week that writer Tess Gerritson will be coming to Omaha in October to speak at the 22nd Women & Health Lecture. Gerritson, who was a doctor before she became a writer will be speaking about her career transition, "From Physician To Fiction."
This month's Omaha Bookworms selection, Generation A by Douglas Coupland, has really pushed me way out of my comfort zone. It's a short book but I've been struggling to keep myself reading. I had hoped to be done with it by yesterday but just couldn't make myself sit down and read. Now that hardly ever happens!
When I finish it I'm not sure what I'll pick up next...an unscheduled review book, something for one of my challenges? Oh, who are we kidding? I'm going to read The Chaperone. Which I happen to have two copies of after forgetting that I already had an ARC for review when I bought a copy the other night to have signed. What are you reading this week?
