Laura Lis Scott

This is where I write about writing, and sometimes about what I’ve written. Elsewhere I blog about tech, culture, design, oddments.

In terms of education, I went to The University of Chicago (BA in English) and Columbia University (MFA from School of the Arts) — no, I’m not giving the years — and the school of hard knocks. I’ve been writing short stories and poetry all my life. I’ve written some screenplays, most not produced, the others you wouldn’t have heard of. In the early ’00s I did editing and layout for some independent magazines. Great experience, not so great timing. I worked in video and television for a number of years; that work got supplanted by the next thing….web design and development, much of it for publishers and universities. From 2006–2010 I was a Contributing Editor at BlogHer. There’s also been some political blogging, but that was not making me happy at all. ‘Nuff said on that.

For the past few years I’ve been a blogger burnout. My sporadic posting indicates that I’m not quite over that burnout. I am spending most of my time writing fiction and learning all I can about independent publishing. Entrepreneurial habits die hard. My only promise to myself as far as this site is concerned is to keep writing my stories and let the writing about the writing — let alone the writing about the writing about the writing, which is what this writing is, let’s face it — take care of itself.
