Seattle author and writing teacher Priscilla Long discusses the art and process of writing with host Nancy Pearl. Long's book, "The Writer's Portable Mentor," serves as a guide for writers at all levels looking for help structuring a book, story or essay and scrutinizes the sentence strategies of the masters. She shares why writing every day - even if you don't feel inspired - is important. She delves into the rules of writing, including structure, grammar, and usage. And she explains why beginning a sentence with a conjunction such as and, but or so  is OK (despite what Nancy's fourth-grade teacher told the class).
