Writers read literary biography, and surround themselves with other writers, deliberately to enforce in themselves the ludicrous notion that a reasonable option for occupying yourself on the planet until your life span plays itself out is sitting in a small room for the duration, in the company of pieces of paper…Why people want to be writers I will never know, unless it is that their lives lack a material footing.

~Annie Dillard, The Writing Life


Welcome to my blog!

I started babystepstowriting two years ago as a chance to write alongside my students. It has morphed into a place where I link my published articles, wax poetic about whatever strikes my fancy, and make contacts within the blogging and writing world.
