Here’s a wonderful post at Literary Mama from writer Lisa Lewis about the maturation of good story ideas. Living in the San Francisco Bay area, Lisa and I met in a writing class taught by the amazing Lewis Buzbee (author of several titles including Fliegelman’s Desire, which I have introduced in some of my classes). Lisa and I started graduate school at the same time—she want to Mills and I went to SF State. Along the way, we compared notes about our experiences and have kept in touch ever since. Nice post, Lisa!
