“There was also no specific requirement to talk about craft. And yet writers—being writers—offered a generous bounty of practical writing advice. They shared exercises. They discussed principles of revision. Some presented ways to beat procrastination, or fight back against writing-desk ennui. And a great many shared their thoughts on the most crucial craft question of all:

Why does some writing feel dead on the page, while other words thrum with life?“

Love her, hate her, don't care about her.....but she's spot-on with this.

“You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot.” ~ Hillary Clinton

JJ Abrams discusses the importance of mystery in storytelling.
"...mystery is the catalyst for imagination."
If you know me at all, the following statement will come as no surprise to you:  I (heart) JJ Abrams.  Even if you're just a casual reader of the blog, you may have noticed in a previous post that I've already discussed the m...

I'm just sharing this for the eleven people in the world who haven't seen it.

Those shots of our planet always bring tears to my eyes. That's us, that's where we live, and we dont' have anywhere else to go. We should probably take better care of it.

Introduction

I am a 31 year old single mom and writer living on the Connecticut shore. My daughter Elise is seven, and together we sometimes give people the impression that we have no idea what is going on. (We're having a really good time over here.)

You should follow me on Twitter and read my blog.
