You might remember that I’m on deadline with the manuscript revisions this week, so I’m spending more time offline than on. For the rest of the week I’ll post a photo and brief about this life in South Africa.
But first, I realized I didn’t give you anything yesterday for Manuscript Monday!
Each writer has a style and voice she can call her own, but some of the best parts of our writer selves come from outside influence: reading; workshops; insightful professor and mentors.
I was excited to see that one of my primary influences, Rosaly Roffman, is reading this weekend at the Carnegie in Pittsburgh, while an ocean away I’m finishing a manuscript that began with an essay written 20 years ago under her tutelage. Click here for event details!
Who were/are your strongest influences?
