Genius!

There is a long-standing, strong, egoistic idea around IQ. Tests are given. People are rated. The higher the score the smarter the person and the more superior. Supposedly. I'm a teacher as well as a writer, so let me add this, "Yeah, right…" I have never had my IQ tested. I don't care. These tests... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving and Complaining

Am I allowed to complain in this month of (Canadian) Thanksgiving? I’m in full swing. Teaching Monday to Friday. Also, writing Monday to Friday with daily meetings and words on the page. I'll add to that---keeping my home and my social life neat and tidy and a little busy. I was so proud of writing... Continue Reading →

Happy Anniversary to Counios and Gane

It happened again!! I missed our anniversary. I'm a terrible partner. Dave missed it too. I guess we are very preoccupied with writing and life.

You may even think it's the first book because it's won awards or because my face is under the plastic bag... Continue Reading →

Roles and Lessons

David invited me to the university to speak to his scriptwriting class about collaboration. We talked about how we started and the journey we took from then to where we are today. When David and I first realized that we clicked creatively, I was directing a high school theater production. I asked him to come... Continue Reading →

The Routine of Writing

After reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield I pondered, because that's what any good book does---it makes you think. I asked myself: What does it look like when I write? What do I do? How do I do it? Great questions and I'd love to tell you* (taken from Elyse Myers, and thank... Continue Reading →
