I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be a writer. I mean I can type, I can blog about who is hotter, Jess or Logan, but I’m not a storyteller. I can tell my own story, but that is all. The voices in my head just don’t tell me about other people. “The Opposite of Fate” by Amy Tan gave me that elusive look into the life of a writer that I had been longing for. She calls it a “book of musings”, it’s a lot like reading the blog of a famous person who doesn’t know she is famous. I never thought I would want to read “The Joy Luck Club”, it just seemed like such a “girly” book, but I now have a newfound respect for it, & I haven’t even read it yet. However, I will read it. Amy Tan is the kind of person I would be friends with if I was cooler.
