Switching from acting to writing was a strange, bumpy road and had a lot to do with getting back into my good Comp Lit college habits. Here's a piece I wrote about falling back in love with reading again up at Hello Giggles today.
Hello Giggles is a site for positive community-building online, and as such they're fantastic, particularly for women and girls, and I'm very excited to be writing for them. This is a gender-neutral piece, though, where I address what people are always asking me about: how I find time to read so much.
Its' definitely an addiction like any other. It's gotten so bad my husband has banned me from purchasing books online. I actually feel jitters when I know I can't instantly purchase all of Raymond Chandler or a volume of Keats' letters or the play The Lady's Not For Burning (all of which I'm jonesing for right now, although I already have a formidable pile of unread books to get through and no clams, sigh.) This is why we need decent libraries. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS. SO LITTLE TIME (and money)!
Thanks for checking it out!
