How have I overlooked Lamott and Dillard's brilliant books on writing? They've not only taught me some excellent stuff about how to write, but reminded me that, as a writer, I am not alone. And they made me laugh.
When did everybody start reading all the time? When did reading stop being a privilege and begin to be a necessity? And how has technology transformed how much we read, what we read, and how we read it? I'm planning research and writing around these questions.
