For a while now I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog in Romanian. When I say blog I mean nothing more than a medium that will allow easy publishing. Since I started teaching I’ve craved a continuous conversation on writing and reporting. I believe it would be beneficial to my students and, certainly, myself. Writing is what I do for a living and I think of the craft constantly. Blogging about it might help spread some of my ideas on storytelling to Romanian journalists and readers.
That said, I give you A scrie (it means To write). The blog is in the roughest form possible (let’s call it a beta of betas), with nothing set in place. It will hopefully find a form, a design and a basic structure in the next few weeks – but it will be mainly a vehicle to discuss non-fiction writing and the process by which such writing comes about. It might also showcase some of my students’s work and ideas/strategies from other working reporters (probably people I work with on putting out Esquire). It’ll feature stuff like this. Yes, it’ll be in Romanian.
Wish me luck and read me – if language is not a barrier.
PS: Owlspotting will keep going.
