I realized today that there are times when I am like a sponge: out there seeking insights about writing and drinking up all the information my brain can handle. Right now I’m a sponge seeking everything I can learn about personal essays.
- I’m reviewing content from a workshop I took from Abigail Green.
- I happened across a past issue of Writer’s Digest buried under stacks of books on my desk and lo and behold, the main focus of that issue? Personal essays.
- I just did a search online and found this fabulous Q&A with Dinty Moore about personal essays.
The important thing for me to remember? Squeeze the sponge and put what I’m learning to use.
