Creating the Innocent Killer. There's always moral instruction whether the writer inserts it deliberately or not.

Creating the Innocent Killer

The least effective moral instruction in fiction is that which is consciously inserted. Partly because it won't reflect the storyteller's true beliefs, it will only reflect what he BELIEVES he believes, or what he thinks he should believe or what he's been persuaded of. But when you write without deliberately expressing moral teachings, the morals that show up are the ones you actually live by. The beliefs that you don't even think to question, that you don't even notice-- those will show up. And that tells much more truth about what you believe than your deliberate moral machinations. --Orson Scott Card Over the years I have told a number of friends that, if I had had access to a nuclear device when I was in seventh grade, there would be a huge crater in upstate New York centered on what used to be West Seneca Junior High School.

It was when I read Anne Enright’s Granta Book of Irish Stories (my primer for teaching) that I discovered Éilís Ní Dhuibhne and she knocked Elizabeth Bowen off my number one spot.

In praise of Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, by Martina Evans

I read Midwife to the Fairies to my Londoners in a Covent Garden classroom. They knew nothing about Irish fairies but they were gripped. The force of the story struck me anew when I read it aloud because every word hovered in the air, pitch-perfect. The effect was uncanny. I’ve been working my way through her backlist ever since. Other favourites: Elizabeth Bowen, Edna O’Brien, Mary Lavin and Eibhlín Dubh Ní Chonaill Martina Evans is a novelist and poet, currently shortlisted for the Irish Times Poetry Now award.

Famous Advice on Writing: The Collected Wisdom of Great Writers. Famous Writers on the Creative Benefits of Keeping a Diary. By Maria Popova Reflections on the value of recording our inner lives from Woolf, Thoreau, Sontag, Emerson, Nin, Plath, and more.

Famous Writers on the Creative Benefits of Keeping a Diary

“You want to write, you need to keep an honest, unpublishable journal that nobody reads, nobody but you,” Madeleine L’Engle counseled in her advice to aspiring writers. W.H. Auden once described his journal as “a discipline for [his] laziness and lack of observation.” Journaling, I believe, is a practice that teaches us better than any other the elusive art of solitude — how to be present with our own selves, bear witness to our experience, and fully inhabit our inner lives. It was also her way of learning to translate the inner into the outer, the subjective into the universal: This personal relationship to all things, which is condemned as subjective, limiting, I found to be the core of individuality, personality, and originality.
