Where do you find inspiration?

My inspiration comes from little things — seeing a dog play in the grass, or a distressing story in the news — which often leads to ideas I just can’t get out of my head. I think about the feelings or emotions someone else is expressing and consider how my own experience leads me to interpret that. I often think about how disagreements and conflict arise from our inability or unwillingness to understand each other. When I write creative nonfiction, I’m often thinking about how my perspective of an event is different from those around me. I try to explore these different interpretations and, for better or for worse, consider how anyone involved (myself included) may have reacted differently.

Why do you write/create Creative Non-Fiction?

I’ve always enjoyed reading CNF but didn’t start writing in the genre until about 2016. I had an excellent professor (shoutout to Jacqueline Doyle — her writing is fantastic!) who led a wonderful workshop aimed at helping newcomers begin writing in the genre. She helped me begin to write CNF as a means to explore what I didn’t know, rather than focus on what I did. I’ve since taken that advice seriously and it has inspired every nonfiction piece I’ve written — including, or especially, the works I’ve never finished. I write CNF because writing is a form of thinking and the unknown is too fascinating.

What are you reading now?

For full-length CNF, the last memoir I read was Educated by Tara Westover, which was phenomenal. I volunteer as a reader for the literary magazine CRAFT, where I mainly read CNF submissions. I’ve enjoyed the work we’ve published there recently. I enjoy graphic memoir and recently zipped through Mary Talbot’s Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes in one sitting. Finally, I was recently gifted David Leeming’s biography on James Baldwin. While I’m only about a quarter of the way through, it’s a thoughtful and revealing book that I’m quite enjoying.

Where can we follow you and find your work?

    Backup for Facebook
    A user-friendly interface can always prove to be a useful thing when managing your client’s credentials, because it is not hard to get lost looking for a password or an email address. BackUp for Facebook has evolved so that it can easily maintain credentials for your Facebook account without having to remember your ID or password and serves as a backup in case you lose these credentials.

    This is the one that seems nice the first time you read it, and then you realize – – it’s really not. It’s the comment that says “Great angle!” or “Wow, this picture makes you look great,” it’s the comment version of saying you don’t normally look like this, clearly this picture is false advertisement (a screenshot of this type of comment appears in the teaser spot on the home page).
    Commenting is a key aspect of the photo experience, whatever message they’re sending. But for those of us too lazy to come up with witticisms, there’s always the like button.

    It’s only funny when it’s someone else. Untag and pretend it doesn’t exist. The more you comment the more it shows up on news feeds.
