Daily Thoughts 10/5/2009
I went and straightened up some displays this morning. I also did a bit more weeding in the 800s. I have a copy of the magazine Booklist on my desk to read.
I have started working on a bookmark which lists several different books on writing including Writing Begins With The Breath, The Elements of Style, Spunk and Bite, The Reader Over Your Shoulder, and other titles. I am about half way finished putting it together. Microsoft Publisher is becoming more familiar for me to use.
On the way home, I read some of Alice Fantastic by Maggie Estep. You can read the influence of Charles Bukowski in this work. The main character, Alice bets the horses which reminds me a bit of Charles Bukowski. Also, the author, Maggie Estep is both a slam poet and a novelist. The poet and novelist combination has that Bukowski edge to it. The characters are also bohemian in their lifestyle. There is a lot of sex. This also reminds of the poetic character of Charles Bukowski.
Running out of tags is rather interesting on Blogger. I can't use the term Maggie Estep in the tags because it goes over my tag limit.
