I have a secret. I like to write (and not just these newsletter openers!). I mean short stories and occasional poems, plus I’ve always dreamed about penning that next great YA novel (haven’t we all?). But here’s the thing: it’s hard to find the time when you work in the publishing industry like I do.
I'm not complaining --- if you’re into the literary scene, there’s nothing more exciting than being surrounded by books and authors on a daily basis --- but when you’re constantly reading, editing people’s book reviews, going to cool book events and coming up with ideas for fun roundups, it’s difficult to squeeze in the energy to listen to your own muse.
