Question:

Can you recommend any books on writing? Do you have a writing routine?

Answer:

Hello fellow writer, question-asker, and writing-routine enthusiast! You're in good company. My writing routine involves waking up early (not for everyone), having a cup of coffee (very important), and writing three to five pages longhand about whatever I want. I take myself on artist dates when I can, and I am constantly reading. I'd say, it's other people's words, art, or ideas that most inspire me to create. Three books I'd recommend are "Mystery and Manners" by Flannery O'Connor, "The Right to Write" by Julia Cameron, and "Writing Down the Bones" by Natalie Goldberg. I'd be happy to help you search for books on writing, or the writing routines of some of your favorite authors.

Question:

What career advice can you offer a seasoned public librarian who is ready and motivated to make the transition into virtual librarianship?

Answer:

Great question! I'd say, put to use those skills you've learned in library school and working with the public. You've answered 1000s of reference questions, found many book-needles-in-haystacks, and can always recommend a book for the most reluctant readers (heck, you've probably read it yourself). Over time, those skills you've honed hosting story-times, explaining resources, providing technical assistance, or creating virtual programs will be invaluable as you embark on your remote work journey. Check out as many freelance writing books, search as many career websites, and think as far out of the box as it takes -- if you can find a book for every reader, you can find a job that works for you.

Subject: Literature

Question:

Where can I find accurate, up-to-date information about my favorite authors online (for free) for a paper I'm writing on Mark Twain? Do you have a preferred library resource for author biographies?

Answer:

I am so happy you asked this question! My favorite (free) library resource for author information is Bloom's Literature. Originally edited and curated by one of the most prolific readers and Lit-Critics of all time, Harold Bloom, this library resource includes essays, author bios, full-length poems, videos, and full-text reference books. Bloom's Literature is a great starting point for learning more about authors and their work. You'll likely find a treasure trove of information for your Mark Twain paper.
