An esteemed author once wrote, "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."
That is a guiding principle for me. Whether I am writing or editing, I seek to paint words with vivid brushstrokes, tapping into ideas through images; feelings through sensations; facts through well-mined research.
Once I start a project, my focus goes into striking compelling notes of
expression within a given equation.
