Buying More Time

Time flies... and we're already heading into graduation prep season. So crazy how fast time goes.

So, I'm reading Buying Time, the latest novel by Pamela Samuels Young. Love it, love it, LOVE it. If you haven't picked up one of her four legal thrillers, you ought to. Deftly plotted. Excellent and authentic dialogue. Strong sistas as leading characters. Someone needs to scoop her novels up as a tv pilot or a film. For real. If you're in L.A. area, she'll be reading and discussing her novels at Cal State L.A. Student Union, Monday, April 12 at 6 pm.

Speaking of time, many writers I know say they have very little of it. For some, it might not be a matter of time... but a matter of Twitter? Or Facebook? Very interesting article in this weekend's LA Times: Should a new writer quit Twitter and Facebook? It takes a fascinating look at one writer's reflection on her productivity while giving up the social networks for the first three months of this year.

Finally, non-related but related... I just love how seamlessly the singer Monica has bridged old school with new school in her song, Everything To Me. Silly by Deniece Williams was always a favorite, and Monica updates in a very honorable way.

Take care!
