We all know the famous controversy surrounding Gordon Lish’s edits of Raymond Carver’s short stories. But what if Gordon Lish was really just a fanboy?
Here is some more science writing. In this paper I look at how taxonomists classify living organisms over history, the limitations of each taxonomic scheme, and how new schemes develop. Enjoy!
This is a school project where I put together my love of language, my love of animals, and my love of animal behavior. Since writing the paper, I have read some articles suggesting that non-human animals are even closer to language than previously thought. Please do share any comments you have, I am always trying to learn more in this area! Enjoy!
I decided to write a poem about the circularity of life. Kids are born to parents, and have grandparents. When they grow up, they become parents and then grandparents themselves. People move forward in life, but when they become forgetful they become childlike again. Growing-Roots-Poem-Version-2
Here is a teenage girl’s blog filled with writing, pictures, science, poetry, music, and just generally things that I think are awesome. Life is filled with lots of new and exciting experiences, and so this blog is a way of sharing some of mine with the world.
I love writing, I love creating art, I love science, and I love music – and if you’re checking out my site, I hope you do too! And most of all, I hope you find something new and exciting that just makes you smile.
Have a great happy day everyday!
