About meIt's mostly great fiction with me. The writing needs to sing or fly or dance. I feel most comfortable with first person past tense storytelling. It sounds most human and old-fashioned; compared to the trend of present tense, where I feel as if I'm a character in the story and I don't want to be. I also wonder about the " less is more" doctrine. Is this really true? I don't analyze word counts when I read. I listen to the music of the writing.
About my libraryYou'll have to wait to really see. But in short, I like Southern literature. I subscribe to the Oxford American. The South is someplace I don't need to be, but it seems the heat generates some fantastic writing, more than the winter cold reality of the northern plains. I know this is most likely wrong, but Southern writing is where I go.
