Robin Black hit the literary scene (of course she was an overnight success, aren’t all authors?) in 2010 with her collection of short stories, If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This. I was fortunate enough to study for nine weeks with Robin in 2009 and she has encouraged and influenced me since then.
Frequently, she writes for www.beyondthemargins.com and her current post is enough to make all of us cry out, “Yes! That’s it! We have to be insane to write! To live! To love!” Robin begins with the title Completing the Story: What’s Love Got to Do With It? She reveals a good deal of her personal life and how she came to be a writer and how the love of what we do, combined with a healthy dose of insanity, is the diving board we use to jump into the dating pool and into the crashing waterfall of writing.
Check out her entry. I’ll be interested to know what you think.
