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

Questions Needed

Do you have a question about writing (or maybe art [including other art forms], reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and yes even possibly social justice, especially as it pertains to those things)?  

Did I maybe not answer your question completely, and you want to follow up?

Have you sent me a question and I never answered it? (Because my brain is a desolate wasteland with oases of incredibly dense eclectic nonsense in which an old e-mail can easily go missing for years.)

Are you a question, and you need a place to stay where you will be welcomed and not judged, and maybe even find that special answer you've been looking for all your life?

Something something something somatic satiation of the word "question"?

We're about to ramp up to two mailboxes a week (most weeks) here at Writing About Writing. Your questions inspire me to write about topics I've been thinking about and often been meaning to write about but just haven't gotten to the sit-down-and-word point. They are inspiring and stimulating, and they tend to do consistently better than most of my other posts.

I have a LOT of questions in the hopper right now and at the rate I'm going they build up faster than they go away. However, if I go up to two mailboxes a week, it won't be very long until I'm OUT of questions in the hopper. And that's when I start cannibalizing Facebook comments and random conversations. Then I start walking down the street and accosting innocent people for questions: "I SAID ASK ME SOMETHING ABOUT LINGUISTICS!" It's all bad.

That's where you come in. Save random people on the Oakland streets from being accosted and forced to come up with questions about craft and process by sending me your questions!

Send your questions to chris.brecheen@gmail.com and I will answer them (if they are at least peripherally about one of the topics above....or possibly the answer would be hilarious). I will include only your first name unless you request your full name, a pseudonym, or total anonymity.
