Rooted in my more than thirty years of writing, teaching writing, and training teachers of writing from kindergarten to college, this blog explores the romantic comedy that is my realtionship with words. Love always involves a wrestling with ego. We become entranced with the people and things we love believing they will make us whole. But love demands that we recognize our separate identities–and commit ourselves to who and what we love anyway. Romance and writing both reside in the tension between differences and similarities and our ability to accept and ultimately relish that tension. That’s what attracts and intimidates me about writing. I want to talk about how to do that well.
