Have you ever harbored dreams of being a writer? You're far from alone. Have you wrestled time and again with a seeming inability to write? You've got even more company there. Now help is on the way, in the person of Gabriele Rico, professor of English and creative arts at San Jose State University.In her book Writing the Natural Way, Rico says flatly, "If you can speak, form letters on the page, take a telephone message, or write a thank-you note, you have sufficient language skills to learn to write the natural way." In this conversation she provides a wealth of information on how you can unlock your own innate creativity and write the novel, poem, or Pulitzer Prize-winning postcard of your dreams.
