Robert Lamb

Author Robert Lambabout this book: Along with a love of writing, I've long been interested in the creative act of writing. Some things we write come largely unembellished from life experiences; others, however, come from origins too mysterious to trace. Any creative writer will tell you that. If you, too, have wondered I think you will like this collection of stories and poems in which, in after-notes, I try to trace the origin of the particular story or poem. I think these works will also appeal to the aspiring writer, for they reflect that for a writer no experience is ever wasted. One of the stories, for instance, is "R.I.P.," which was a winner in the 2009 South Carolina Fiction Project. I wrote it decades after I first got the idea for the story. Why so long? That's the kind of question that for me comes right back around to the mystery of creativity in art. I taught creative writing for 20 years at the University of South Carolina. I didn't solve the mystery of creativity in all that time, but I believe that any aspiring writer could benefit from reading this book.
