Voice Lessons from a Hybrid Ambassador

Posted on August 11, 2010 at 8:55am 0 Comments

Every day, from my Twitter stream to my blog reader, there’s a controversial topic that captures my attention. Poised on the edge of typing in a heated response or writing a blog post in reaction, my surety wavers. I’m at a precipice, knowing that if I chose to go further, I commit publicly to an idea or a belief that is part of a larger mosaic of my online identity.

I acknowledge that my words could leave a trail of anger and… Continue

The Art of Cultivating a Creative Life

Posted on January 19, 2010 at 12:30am 0 Comments

20 women sit around long tables pushed together in a corner of a café in Istanbul on a Saturday morning. The clink of coffee cups, the murmur of orders being placed. I pace around a little bit, preparing myself physically and mentally to talk about creativity to this group of professional women that I have been a part of since 2007.

Thinking in color

Posted on December 24, 2009 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

For as long as I can remember, I have thought in color. I envision the calendar year, for example, as a line drawing shaped like a dissected pie, each month represented by a wedge of color. Cheerful spring and summer months are aqua and pink, fall colors green and yellow, and winter ashen and purple. Colors have a particular sound and pitch. I grid what I see, make visual lists that hang like objects in space.

Rose, I can't believe I didn't see your comment until now! I haven't been visiting my She Writes page for a while, and for some reason I never got email notification. I'm terribly sorry I didn't reply. :S
I'd love to take a look at your stories. Also, although I'm way behind in my novel, I'd love to have you critique it.
