Hi there. Well, I was not a complete social recluse tonight. I enjoyed the Get Lit! Festival. No, that's not code for go-out-and-get-shit-faced. It's a festival put on by EWU to celebrate literature in our community. I had the opportunity to attend a reading by Colson Whitehead (Zone One) and Jess Walter (Beautiful Ruins). Both were thoroughly entertaining. The best part? Hearing about their process and how it's not so magical all the time...which I knew was true per my own writing experiences, but it's always nice to hear from others for confirmation of this fact. I'm going to pick up copies of their books ASAP to add to my list (which means I will be downloading them onto my Nook). Happy reading!
