People often ask me what I'm reading. This week I'm finishing up the lovely, sensual Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson and also enjoying a book of poems entitled What Travels With Us by Darnell Arnoult. If you are a fan of Spoon River Anthology, you'll love Darnell's book as it captures the voices of the residents living in a textile mill community in 1900's Virginia. I'm a sucker for love poems, and there are several in this book that make me want to cuddle up and write. (Is there any greater compliment?) Today, read a good love poem. Then write one.
