About Lindeb

"Writing makes me sick," claim many beginning writers. "No," I've been known to retort, "writing makes you (sic)!" Great writers are made, like great athletes or great gamers. In my 8 years' teaching college freshmen and sophomores, I've yet to teach a student who, as the comment lament goes, "cannot write."

I wasn't a bookworm growing up; I haven't read everything in the "literary canon." I treat everyday writing, however, like the Super Bowl. I love the technical aspect of writing, and I want everyone of my students to love the subtleties of the language as well. Thus, if you work with me, you will constantly use meta-cognition: thinking about your thinking. Those who can explicate and justify their writing choices--in terms of content, grammar, mechanics, syntax, paragraph and essay development, support, and the like--can also think critically. And what is writing other than thinking? Doesn't a written composition provide the writer's audience with a portal into that writer's mind?

Here's the skinny: If you need help with any facet of composition, rhetoric, literary analysis, and research, then I can help you. I spend most of my waking life with my 6-month old and with my nose buried in writings. I've worked with writers of various age groups. We will strive for perfection, but we will have fun doing it. I might not be the coolest fellow, but I'm not a curmudgeon!
