Poets & Writers: Writers Recommend

Poets & Writers recently asked me to contribute to Writers Recommend, an online collection of tips, strategies, and practices that inspire writing. It took me a long time to decide what to write about–I thought about kayaking (I would be a kayak/nature guide if I could arrange it) or this book, which I often use to prompt my students to write with more honesty and specificity, or watching the bald eagle family that nests near my house. But in the end I wrote about the loft where I like to do my writing, and about keeping other writers’ struggles in mind when I can’t write; click here for my post.

In general, I think it’s important to be aware of what makes you feel inspired, what sustains you creatively, so you can make sure it doesn’t go missing from your life.
