To write

I’m really enjoying Haruki Murakami’s memoir What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. The content is wonderfully self-insightful, and (in translation, at least) he has a simple and natural style that encourages me “hey, I could do this!”

I’m also enjoying Tell It Slant, the textbook for my writing class.  The use of English is exquisite, and their insights are thought-provoking, though in a very different way.  While I luxuriate in rereading their perspectives on writing as art, it also leaves me fretting “I have to worry about all that!”

Well, clearly “good writing” and “commercially successful writing” are two different animals, and while I’d like to do (a), I’d really love to do (b).  Enough to pay the rent, anyway.  Well, then get on it, my little voice tells me.
