Many days that will be a struggle, then there will be those golden days when it just flows and three pages can grow into twenty or more.

Get the story down. Don’t let the attempt to get it perfect interrupt your flow. Expand and fill it in later.

Writing is magical. You start with an idea and begin the process of getting it on paper and at one point it takes on a life of its own. It has been my experience that on good days, a story will write itself.

I was being interviewed as the linguistic research assistant on a very special project that was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and located at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). Thi... Read more of this blog post »
