For Paschal

With a single paragraph my good friend Paschal, over at Murat11, pointed me towards a writer who is as fascinating as the stories she writes and as imaginative as the words she uses. Muchas gracias, mi amigo!

And for my friends who also write, JS, Alt, Sandi, San, David, Jeni, Susan, and the list could go on and on, "Please sit for awhile and listen to this fascinating story read by its author, Aimee Bender, and take note of anything she says that you might find helpful."

As JS commented on the Randy Pausch lecture, I watched the whole thing, takes about 50 minutes. Worth it!

Very cool. I think this will be a good thing to do during my upcoming seven teacher "work" (ha) days before the urchins roll in. Thanks for the posting, Lee. I wonder if I have to steal her look when I finally manage to steal her story. I'll get to work on it.

:) You're welcome Paschal. Re: copy her look if you think it would keep the urchins focused. Have you visited her website? She puts up monthly writing exercises.

I've sent this to my son so he can let Arianna listen...I'm sure she'll love it!

Lee said...

Wow, Sandi, your granddaughter is going to get a great education in your family. Lucky girl.


San said...

I don't have the 50 minutes right now, but I want to return when the time is more abundant and the connection is faster.

Thank you for intriguing me, Lee.

You're welcome, San! I can't wait to find out what an entire book by her is like. :)
