The writing process

'SHOW, don't tell.' That's the advice writers get when we are starting to write. I think that's pretty marvelous advice, except, um. We're writing. So how do you 'show?' Well, it's a good thing I brought the new camera. I'm borrowing it. From BOSS. It has a bunch of cool…

THE ODDEST thing about being still for a long moment, especially when the sun doesn't set, and that moment feels like one day, is that you finally notice what's right in front of you. A river. A tree. And the big sky. This is the feeling of being where I…
