  • no one's a mystery by elizabeth tallent (short story)
  • reading stories written by classmates
  • being in an english class
  • good feedback on something i've already written
  • an irritating conversation that makes me realize how much i'd rather be writing
  • movies about letters or letter writing
  • movies or tv shows with brilliant scripts
  • editing rough drafts with a pen and paper (not on the computer)
