"The Road" Author Cormac McCarthy


Hello Fellow Writers!

I am on my way to the very last NaNoWriMo write-in at Panera. I'll be sad to see the month end, but I'm glad that I will continue to meet a couple of the other women on the weekend to sit and have coffee and tap away on our laptops.

DH and I saw the movie "The Road" last night. My husband read the book very quickly, which is saying a lot because it normally takes him forever to get through an entire novel. Personally, I love fun movies that leave you feeling good, with a nice neat Happily Ever After. "The Road" is not such a book or movie. But you can't argue with the awards it's received (like the 2007 Pulitzer for fiction). It's not my taste, but it's still an amazing book (and movie). If it doesn't win some sort of Oscar I will be shocked.

Cormac McCarthy, the author of "The Road", did a wonderful interview with "Oprah". You can watch the whole thing here by clicking on the different parts. In this section, he discusses how he feels about writing.



Today I plan on writing that new opening scene for "Snowed in With a Millionaire" and also to make some of the minor fixes that I found on my initial read-through of the first draft.

Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!
Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
