Writing news

This week has been dedicated to researching and writing critical essays for my second semester at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Next week I get to have fun with my new creative work.

What am I working on? Last semester I worked on a dog story. I tried to tell it from the dog's viewpoint, but very few writers can manage this, and I don't seem to be one of them. With the help of my Vermont College advisor, I changed the point of view to the man/boy and condensed it to picture book size. What an interesting writing adventure that was.

This semester my creative work will be about -- cats. So far the cats don't speak. I hope I can keep it that way, because it's more of a story about a girl and her cat, not the cat's story.
