THE OPEN ROAD: Writing is a Strange Adventure IV

This video is all about what it means to be a writer every day and about what it means to let your thoughts of being a writer invade everything that you do. You can hear me laughing during the "motorcycle" part of the video, and you can hear me say: "I'll provide the bumps." I think one of the most stunning aspects of this clip is the journal footage.

The journals ARE amazing! Were these journals they created for the course?

ump hf.

If I were any greener I'd be an alien invasion. I want to take your writing class.

I want.

I need.

I have felt truly honoured to be allowed to 'sit in' on these sections of your classes. Thank you - and thanks to your students too for sharing their work.

The people in my class are so amazing! I realize this more and more as I rescreen our video.

Thanks for helping me to see this! And thanks for being such an awesome professor... seriously, you were a huge change from what I have all the time, and I really needed that.

As a future teacher, it's so good to see how much you (as a college professor!) care about your students. Seriously, seriously, seriously... thanks for being SUCH a great example.

About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
