What I love most about the Amherst Writers method is that I’ve generated so. much. writing. Sure, they are short pieces, but I now have a file full of ideas for short stories, poems, and–who knows?–maybe even a novel. These posts are all very fresh writing–a few bits & bobs I’ve left workshops with, stuffing them into my pocket to work on sometime … maybe. Or not. I offer them up as encouragement–if I can do this, you can, too.
