I had my first baby and started a blog. That was in 2005. Nine years later, I had my fourth baby and stopped my blog. I spent the next year taking care of that baby and writing handwritten letters. Every day from March 9, 2015, to March 8, 2016, I took what I could say to the masses and doled it out to one person at a time, one letter at a time. I didn’t want my Letter Project to end.
I still write some letters, but now I write about writing letters, about what I learned in the process and how I became more human. I have decided to merge my thoughts on letter-writing with my interest in quotes and my fascination with minutiae into one big unfinished letter called a blog. It is addressed to you, with love.
Earlier this week, I finished reading both of the books on writing that I had been working my way through for the past few weeks. I should clarify what I mean by "finished." I read all the words in each book once and stared at the author photos on the back about a dozen times.

How do authors do it? Have all this time to write, and then all this time to read too?
I get in bed around 11:15 most nights and read for 10 or 15 minutes only. I get so sleepy that I can't do more. I want to read more. I need to read more.
