Jennifer duBois on writing across gender

I was researching free indirect discourse (please, not here!) and came across this blog entry with a quote from Jennifer duBois, a writer, discussing writing across species gender and saying…

“… Writing from a female point of view seems to be generally regarded as something more like writing from the perspective of a deer: you might get points for novelty, but it’d be impossible to get right, and who really wants to hear a deer narrate a story, anyway?” 

Ouch! My The Deer Story is nothing if not a deer narrating a story.  There are people actually buying (and presumably reading) it, and some even go on to read A Hawk’s Tale.

Next project – a memoir about trees in my life

Hopefully it won’t read as boring as it sounds!  Here’s what the muse had me say…

“Do not say that I am a tree hugger!  Yes, I have hugged trees, but it was for my sake, not theirs, and that makes all the difference.”

“Known For Her Courage” is at the e-printers!

Now listed on Author’s Den

The Author’s Den site is yet another forum for connecting readers and authors.  It will take a while to get all the stories listed.  For now I have only listed the memoirs of my youth in Stafford Springs… “The Stories of My Youth”.
