I’m immensely grateful to Qarrtsiluni magazine, not only for accepting and presenting my brief piece, “With or Without,” as part of its current “Fragments” issue, but also for encouraging me to acquire a new skill: how to make an audio recording.
Following Qarrtsiluni‘s guidelines–and with the benefit of a little time, patience, and experimentation–I’ve become semi-comfortable with the iTalk application (I upgraded for a nominal fee). Hence, last week’s post and its incorporation of brief audio excerpts from “Homecomings,” one of the stories in Quiet Americans.
I’m reminded, again, of the importance of adding new skills to my writing practice. What are some of the new items in your writing-practice toolbox? I’d like to know.
