What do you write when you can't think of anything to write? You keep writing. That's what free writing is all about. (See Peter Elbow's work on the subject.) Thinking back to when Marash Girl first started teaching writing, she can't believe how staid she was in her approach. Now, freed up from the manner in which she was taught to write -- outline, introductory paragraph, main body of essay, concluding paragraph -- she now can write about nothing when she has nothing to say. (Too much to say, and no time in which to say it . . . or write it, as the case may be.) Like today. Except she must note her regret that she never got to see the eclipse of the moon last night. Did you?
