“'Design thinking is a mindset'...and it starts with empathy."
"For writing teachers, design thinking offers several principles that are helpful, because it addresses the complex challenges that writers face. By teaching our students to face these challenges together, with minds open to new possibilities and a willingness to fail, we can teach students a means to successful writing."

"Writing is a difficult trade which must be learned slowly by reading great authors; by trying at the outset to imitate them; by daring then to be original..." (Attributed to André Maurois, 1885-1967)
Dare to be original! We are artists. There is a writer in each of us. The pen, the brush, poised ever so precariously above the canvas...color and technique blending to create a landscape for the imagination.
