  1. I hold a M.A. in comparative lit from the University of Southern California. Do I use it in my writing career? Let me count the ways…

    My overall grasp of language and communication is valuable in constructing a story, developing a plot arc, knowing how to build characters and to put words in their mouth. The many last-minute essays have given me a way to cope with deadlines, and with persnickity editors. My grounding in grammar and style is my foundation for sharp-eyed editing. A knowledge of the world’s literature has taught me how I should try to write; and my appreciation for poetry has defined my personal style.

    So I suppose I could say my academic background comes in handy sometimes.

    Write happy! 😀
