History at Hand (Literally)

Yesterday I worked with a crew of DNR Law Enforcement personnel on a project at the State Library in Lansing and we got a personal tour of the archives and how to use them.

I was cruising through historical photos and ran across the following of what Mackinaw City and Iggy used to look like at deer season, pre-bridge. And there’s also shot of bridge under construction.

Eavesdropping as research:Hearing the things people say

Much good writing is built on dialog, the rhythms and twisted logics of conversation between people. Group settings are good places to sit and listen and write down lines out of context – Sam’s Club, your local bar, train station, airport, people around you in a theater, or on a bus or train, in an […]
