A Circus in Love

The Night Circus, written by Erin Morgernstern is a great novel based in the late 1870’s to 1904 and switches between a girl named Celia Bowen, a small girl at the beginning of the novel that grows up to become a sort of master illusionist, Marco, Ceila’s mysterious opponent, and Bailey, a small child that goes to the circus several times throughout the novel. 665 more words


Revived--again--by fiction

After a long season of writing, re-writing, and editing, diving into the fiction of others makes for a fun change of pace. Immersion in the work of those who really know what they’re doing inspires me, too, and makes me less willing to settle too soon for the sentences and paragraphs with which I build my own stories. 465 more words
