I recently picked this book up at a thrift store for fifty cents and I love it. It's a collection of short stories written by Richard Bausch and, other than some bad language, I think it's brilliant. In fact I have little note cards floating around my room with tidbits of his brilliance written all over them. So far every story has been filled with alcoholism, divorce, death, despair or dysfunction of some sort or another, but what can I say, it speaks to me.
I am so inspired by the talents of others, and authors like Richard Bausch make me want to PUSH myself to be the best that I can be.
He also makes me want to write more short stories. I love short stories.
Maybe I'll start doing a short story day on this here blog.
Have you pushed yourself today?
