From my journal...

Last night on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric I heard one of the correspondents comment that we can’t necessarily be anything we want, but we can be more than we are.

That’s how I feel about my writing. I might not be capable of being as strong a storyteller as Ann Patchett, for instance, but if I consistently work at my craft and open my heart to telling as honest a story as I can at this moment in time, I will be a better writer tomorrow than I am today.
