My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

In Memoriam

An entry on Writing About Writing might
be just a tiny bit less impressive than
this memorial.
[This is our latest new menu to go into The Reliquary. Everything in italics will disappear in a few weeks.]

Not every writer we lose can be celebrated here at Writing About Writing, or this blog wouldn't be a whole lot more than Writing About Recently Dead Writers. However, sometimes the light of a writer's words were so bright and so brilliant that the whole world flickers and dims just a tiny amount at their passing. I try to say a few words about such writers, and all those posts will end up here.

Gore Vidal
Nora Ephron
Ray Bradbury
Seamus Heaney
