A sad story told through a brave writer. Here is a peek into the Native Americans world and what they think of white people. I found the way Silko used lyrical pose to be very effective when she told the story of the Gods that needed to be worshipped. Her voice is one you can never forget. Very philosophical and thought provoking.

Today I actually wrote for a couple of hours on one of my unfinished novels. I think the most rewarding thing about writing is how you feel when you create a new character or you finish a difficult spot. Today I did both. The only thing that was frustrating about it all was that I didn’t have enough time to write longer. I am hoping I will have another day of just writing. I have an outline but today for some reason my characters did something I wasn’t prepared for. Which is okay. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow of the story. I think I read about some authors who don’t even use outlines. Which I would probably go crazy trying to go rogue. So I stick to the outline somewhat not for guidance but more for a suggestion of how the story should end. This is the only method I like to use. So far it seems to work.
