Hey friends, I'm doing an experiment: I'm taking March off from social media (except necessary business) to see what impact it has on my writing and my non-writing life. See you in April!

I still mentally diagram sentences when editing, and find it a valuable tool. Thank you, Mrs. Prezeau.

Most schools don't even teach diagramming anymore. A high school kid will look at you and shrug if you bring it up.

This is true. However no matter how good of story you come up with, if you can't ( or I can't ) see it from beginning to end in my mind like a movie, I can't seem to write it.

I've been to top ten rated tea houses in Victoria, BC and London, and they weren't even close to as cool as the St James Tearoom. Friendly, unhurried, and creative atmosphere where each nook is unique.
