Morris, Marla, Mary Aswell Doll, and William F. Pinar, eds. How We Work. New York: Peter Lang, 1999.
This is a collection of essays by writers in a number of different fields about their writing processes. One of my goals during my sabbatical has been to read a lot about writing in order to improve my own and to think about where I want my writing to go in the future. I saw a citation for this book and thought it would be helpful for this goal, and I found a new, inexpensive copy for sale, so I decided to buy it.
Pollack, Rachel. Fortune’s Lover: A Book of Tarot Poems. New York: A Midsummer Night’s Press, 2009.
Tarot has become a daily part of my life this year, and poetry is also a daily part of my life, so I was excited to hear about this collection that combines the two. I ordered it several months ago and was told it would be delayed due to the pandemic. It arrived today from Spain (which is where it was printed)! An enjoyable surprise.
