I’ve meant to do this for a long time. I love to write. I feel more normal with ideas that come through text than I do with using my mouth to make sounds we call words and sentences. I know that might not be most people’s experience with writing. But I also know that writing, despite some individuals’ and groups’ and organizations’ and corporations’ feelings about it, is still essential in our world today (despite what Instagram and Twitter might have to say about it).
With Covid-19 seemingly permanently altering our lives, I’m at home more than ever, trying — like most people — to stay safe. I miss helping people, whether it’s my students, colleagues, friends, or family. One thing I’ve always felt confident about is the communication process. That’s not to say I don’t experience my share of miscommunication (just ask my wife!). But writing and editing and teaching/tutoring have become as much a part of my identity as anything. Let me help you, and maybe you can help me.
