Hello ! I'm so excited to share with students what I've learned about writing. Come by my office and introduce yourself or feel free to email me so I can help you meet your writing goals.
As a teacher of writing in the English Department, I am drawn to this quote:
"Tell me more. Tell me all you can. I want to understand more about everything you feel and know and all the changes inside and out of you. Let more come out."
--Brenda Ueland, If You Want to Write
Writing is a process. We don't always (or ever?) sit down and write perfectly. We start in one place and often end up somewhere different than where we expected. Writing is also a gift, but it's a gift with two recipients. First, writing gives us our own voice. It gives us insight into ourselves. It helps us know ourselves more deeply and more intimately. It's also a gift to others. Our readers can know themselves more deeply, too. They can say, "Yes! I feel the same way. I just didn't know how to put it in my own words."
So--stay curious. Be courageous. And no matter what, keep writing.
