By day I write and edit about electric energy issues and infrastructure, and facilitate planning and collaboration by diverse groups of Vermonters who are concerned about our energy future. And I help other people write better. For fun (definitely not profit) I make digital and analog art. I am a storytelling of first-person, true tales, winner of a recent Extempo telling competition, telling regularly at StorytellingVT (at the Monkey House), Extempo, and Burlington's Moth Story Slam, with upcoming out-of-state gigs in Maine and Connecticut.
Lately I've been writing creative non-fiction that is closely tied to my oral storytelling. I'm fascinated by the similarities and the differences between the two forms, and how one can be a springboard for the other in either direction.
This question is impossible for a bibliophile to answer. Some favorites that come first to mind: Wallace Stegner, David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Louise Erdrich, Annie Proulx. Dark is good.
Write freely, try new things, and not worry about self-judgment or perfection.
