Write the Thing

I need to write more...

Bird by Bird (Continuing the 2000/50 Project)
June, otter
So an interesting bit of serendipity happened yesterday in my intermediate creative writing (though I'm not sure how serendipitous it was...). My professor likes to read to us from a book called Bird by Bird by  Anne Lamott. She told us the very first day of class that we would love this book, and we do. As of late though, especially since we haven't quite caught up on work shops, we really had not been able to read through Bird by Bird. I pointed this out in a sad, vomit like epiphany on Tuesday, so my professor made it a point to start the class with the book, rather than trying to end it that way.

Lamott, Anne. "Short Assignments." Bird by bird: some instructions on writing and life. New York: Anchor Books, 1995. 16-20. Print.

There should be a reverse indent on my bib, but you can't do that on livejournal, apparently. 

When Needed

 Here's a reworking of something I've been toying with since the ninth grade, and have finally decided to write down.
