As a writer, keeping track of what other writers are doing, and reading their stuff, is important, and also exhausting. So many talented people to keep track of! But these are the same people who are editing literary magazines and working in publishing and who know things about publishing that you don't, so it is good to read blogs and read new books and old books and check out interviews and obviously doing all of this for every writer you admire (if you're like me and have wide tastes in literature at least) is going to be next to impossible. At least for me. I don't know, maybe you have superpowers and no need to sleep.
At any rate, I just realized I should not randomly decide to post here at 6:00 A.M. because I babble. More than usual.
But, the reason I started this post is because Matt Bell is awesome. Hence the title. I posted a comment on an interview with him which can be found here. And he selected me as the lucky recipient for a copy of his new books and a swag bag full of literary goodies. I am so excited I am doing a little internal happy dance! I never win anything and now I won something pretty awesome just for being my sappy, sentimental, heartfelt self. Gotta love being rewarded just for being me. Woo hoo!!!
