Scholars of Sturges: Faith Wogan (’20) on The Writing Life

When it comes to writing I have always done things differently than what teachers say to do–start with characters, plot, theme, et cetera. I don’t always think before I start writing. Once I’ve got the beginning, I go until I find the middle and the end. My mind flows so fast and I get lost in my own world it’s like when I get absorbed in TV. It’s such a fun experience because I don’t realize how much I’ve typed until I get distracted. When I turn my head back, I look at the screen surprised that so much got done. It’s crazy how a spark of a small idea can whip up a big dish of a story.
