Over the past two weeks, we’ve all shared our experiences as we shed our previous lives as scientists and let our writer-ness out to run free. For me, this video pretty much sums it all up. For reference: baby otter = Melissae
I’m confident I’ll learn to swim just like the little otter. In fact, it’s already happening. The active voice seems more natural, my vocabulary of action verbs is growing, and I’m starting to grasp the somewhat elusive style. Sometimes, though, I still need to be dragged into the pool by my foot. And that’s why I signed up for another year of school–to get the guidance and a push (or a pull) that I needed.
