In a week where few things could keep my attention, I devoured this article about wartime photographer Lee Miller. Ms. Miller shot photos for Vogue during World War II. She had an amazing perspective of the chaos that was unraveling around her. I look forward to reading Hilary Roberts’ book about her life and art.
And honestly – that’s about all that I read this week. The rest of the articles that look interesting are bookmarked and unread in my browser … oh well. Onward!
Listening to: Bonnie Raitt and John Prine’s duet of “Angel of Montgomery.”
Reading: Perhaps more appropriately, what I picked up but couldn’t finish this week. Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl” started out pretty funny, but honestly – I couldn’t keep up with it. Not a reproach on her writing style, but I’m in my late 30s and have a child. I do not spend a lot of time ruminating about my childhood and I’d rather not think about the toads I kissed before I married my husband. I also tried J.D. Robb’s first “Naked” book in that particular series. Eh … it was set as a futuristic novel. Couldn’t stick with it.
Fiction Update: I had some wonderful meetings / conversations with my beta readers for “After Life.” I’m getting some really good feedback and I’m cautiously excited to let my mind wander back into the world of my protagonist Kate, her father Simon, and the folks she encounters. Still have some work that I need to do with “Dragonfly” first …
Happy weekend, friends!
