The Pulitzer Challenge
Because, why not?
Hello dear reader. It’s been just under a year since I’ve posted anything on this page. I can’t believe I’ve been a college graduate for a year now. Time has flown. Sometimes, I wonder what I’ve got to show for it. That notion of graduating college and becoming some person who automatically has their life together is exactly that: a notion. It’s not how things really go.
More than anything, I’ve realized lately that I miss all the reading I used to do in college. I never thought I would be saying that. But as a Creative Writing major, I did a lot of reading in school. And I actually did it (most of the time, anyway) because there was a deadline and a discussion waiting for me in class the next day. I’ve realized how important deadlines can be now that I don’t have any.
So, I’ve decided to make some deadlines for myself. I miss feeling challenged. Thus begins The Pulitzer Challenge. Dun dun DUN.
The plan is to start by reading every play awarded the Pulitzer Prize for drama ever. Starting with the winner from 1918: Why Marry? by Jesse Lynch Williams. I’m going to go in order and read primarily on my Kindle because *free*. A lot of classics and award winners are cheap or free on Amazon. So if you read a review and are totally riveted, pick up a copy and join me. What have we got to lose?
