I’ve shared a link or two in the past to Hooked, a wonderfully interesting blog by an equally interesting woman about her experience as an Alaskan fisherman. She was recently interviewed for a piece on Oregon Public Broadcasting about the intersection between her writing and fishing lives. She’s shared the link from her own blog, but I wanted to share it here, too. This is what writing is about for me. Finding the voice Tele describes in her interview, and finding other writers like Tele who inspire me to keep refining that voice for myself.
When I stumbled on this post while tag-surfing in the infinitely broad category of ‘Writing,’ I had to read it for a few reasons, all of which are in the title, “My Big Fat Lesbian Life – Demi Moore and Orange Leisure Suits.” Check it out. I’m glad I did.
This post made me smile. It’s a simple reminder that we too often over-classify or underestimate people. We’re all guilty, and maybe that’s why it feels so good when we recognize and stop ourselves from doing so.
Charlie Hale is a writer I love to read. This post on family stories is a good example of why I’m constantly drawn back to his blog. I, too, am a bit of a genealogy nut, but Charlie is a masterful storyteller and he seems to effortlessly stamp everything he writes with a sense of importance.
