I REALLY like doing readings of my writing, and not only because I sell some books. I like the dynamics, the energy, the learning that takes place every time I do one. Also, when I read out loud, I always find some lines I could have written better or differently. Once or twice, I’ve found passages that just flat needed revision.
Anyway, I have readings these readings scheduled: Two groups of the SCV (Sons of Confederate Veterans) in Lafayette, Sept. 12 and Oct. 3 respectively. Both groups want me to bring my guitar and perform some Confederate tunes. Then another reading is scheduled for October 23, at the West Ouachita Library, 6:00 pm. Stories of the Confederate South seems to be gathering some followers. I’ve had a couple of reading groups interested in using the book for one of their group’s readings. We’ll see.
