…not whining. What we balanced back and forth were ideas. The length of conversation a tight-rope of our curiosity. There were 3 of us–I had another picture, but for some reason it won’t upload– parking our words in a lounge on a Monday night. The big question we chewed on: is there a difference in Western Canadian writing and Eastern Canadian writing? Not that we think there is, but does landscape make a difference in writing style/technique? Or is it a product of the teacher/student, which might be a product of the environment/place? Or is it all a part of the individual style and what the writer wants to read/write? What does the reader want? Does that influence the writing? Enquiring minds wanted to talk.
