Great write-up, Laura. I wished I'd taken notes during Auel's talk, and now realize I can use yours!
Jean Auel discussed her research process and her response to "write what you know" at an author event Friday night.
Thanks, Bart! I learned that lesson last year when I took notes on Lauren Kessler's "writer's life" speech on scraps from my purse! This time I brought a notepad.
Are you saying that the envelopes I scrawl on are the work of an amateur? (I'm not kidding...I've got two by my computer.)
Au contraire, I'm a fan of envelopes--just not for recording a 20-minute talk! The backs of receipts are more dicey, especially when the ink smears. And it's hard to keep them in order if you need more than one or two.
