Five Questions: L-ement
1. Why do you blog?
It’s a nice way to be reflective without having to think in the same terms one must think in when she writes creative nonfiction for publication.
2. Which author and/or book has most influenced you?
This is a tough one – there are so many! Joan Didion, Salman Rushdie, Barbara Lazear Ascher, and Amy Hempel have all influenced the way I write and the way I think about reading and writing.
4. Why do you read fiction?
Because I like a good story, particularly one that, on the surface, seems removed from my own life and from which I can learn something about us as people and about myself as a writer and reader.
5. What makes you laugh?
David Sedaris, sarcasm, witty one-liners loaded with political or cultural relevance.
