Maybe it’s pretentious to quote, but this statement from Susan Mitchell’s “Notes Toward a History of Scaffolding” (as read in D’Agata’s The Next American Essay) struck me this morning:

“Do I live in order to write? Or do I write in order to live my life as I do?” (249)

The question of a grad student’s life, anybody?


I am an associate professor of English and writing center coordinator at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. I teach courses in composition, creative nonfiction, fundamentals of English, and peer tutoring.
