  1. These are always such useful links, Elizabeth! I like the fact that there are several this time about the process itself ; I think we can all benefit from reflecting on that sometimes.

  2. I’m going to read the Lovercraft article right now. Yes he’s still relevant. He’s an amazing horror author who provided genuine chills and dread. Plus some amazing creatures and a complicated mythos. I’m sure drugs were involved though.

  3. Thanks, Elizabeth! Loved the article by John Spencer. As an introvert I can definitely relate, and great suggestions for how conference faculty can accommodate both learning styles.

    1. Colleen–Thanks for coming by. :) I like that story, too. Actually, I like the whole “Quiet” blog and I ended up buying the author’s book. It’s interesting to hear from a fellow introvert on things like conferences, how group work isn’t as productive for introverts, etc.
