I wrote a newspaper article yesterday. Not a real one, just one for a class. And boy was it fun! No seriously, it was. I forgot how much I liked doing that! Not that I miss it, I rarely think about it because I'm so infatuated with my current area of study, but as I was writing it, the words just flowed. They literally went from vague thoughts in my mind, down through my arms out my fingers and somehow managed to make the keyboard go "click" in the right spots. And it was beautiful. I barely had to go over it again. Not even for spelling. Gosh, and could you believe it, it was on the same subject as my research paper. Writing that was about as near to pulling teeth as I've come. Ew.
And for your enjoyment, click here to access Lewis & Clark's student newspaper, to which I once belonged as a regular writer and editor (before I fled the fair city of Portland without a second glance). I was there for the school year of 2006-2007, and start writing in the October 20th issue.
