Vodka and misery

July 16, 2017

“In Russia, we don’t have proverbs. In Russia, we have vodka and misery.

Wait, that’s a proverb!”

That was Red, in Orange is the New Black. I don’t know that it is, in actuality, a proverb. But it’s a great line, so I’ll forgive the writers. 

Pithy yet meaningful words are not easy to come up with. I feel the pressure daily in my writing here and for my work. 

Writing is an invaluable skill and something that should be stressed more in school, no matter what you study. It’s always useful to be able to communicate with the written word in any kind of job, for the most part. 

You don’t have to love it, but you should know how to do it.

    When I write I recall an English teacher from my youth saying, “Show, don’t tell.” It always helps me to craft a better story.
