I tend to grab a few minutes here and there when I have time. It usually ends up being Saturday at Starbucks, but it works. I don't mind writing when other people are around, I find it hardest when I'm at home and my family (4 teenagers and a DH) interrupts me all the time. I work in an accounting f...

Yah, I know what you mean, though I loved the Island. I guess I was just so caught up in the tale that I swallowed that part of it no problem as well. :) It was pretty bizarre, though. I guess I didn't really think about what might have been real and what hallucination. I think the part I found most...

That's interesting, I didn't see the ending as open to interpretation. I guess I felt that he only told them that story to give them what they wanted, something a little more believable. but there were some parts toward the end that got a bit... strange... What did you think was strange at the end?

The Life of Pi

I just finished reading "Life of Pi" and I loved it. I found it to be a delightfully different story full of surprises and insights. I didn't expect it to be as funny as it was, either. I would highly recommend reading this book. I'd love to discuss it with anyone that has read it, too.

I used an iBook (Mac) and I just love it. I got mine though ebay for a really great price. I also have a wireless card and a good battery so I can go anywhere in my house with no cords. That way if there are people around and I want to write I can go hide somewhere else. :) I also love Macs because ...
