Cool surprise from this interview with Karen Russell that made me really happy:   
Karen Russell: Back at Northwestern, I was fortunate enough to meet the excellent writer Dan Chaon, who came and talked to our writing class. I remember turning in a story to him that was way too long, some twenty-two-page mess about a lady who had a huge starfish and could see the future. I think the character was abducted by these two brothers—I don’t know, I’ve repressed the rest of it.
But Dan was so kind to me about this story, and he told me I should be reading Kelly Link, George Saunders, Kevin Brockmeier. He alerted me to these contemporary writers who were writing weird, inventive stuff. They were New Wave Fabulists, he said.
And I owe them a huge debt; I went on to become a blood-sworn fan of those writers. I felt a sort of tail-wagging joy, you know, reading these story collections. A recognition. It was like Dan rode through town and handed me a literary family tree.

Dear Students,

Once you pick your character name, how might you draw yourself as that character?

Here are some of the practice pages I made in my composition notebook while I tried to work out how I’d do it.

Professor Spooky Bootsy or Professor Monkey Bootsy?

It will change, depending on the day but  I will always need my star-glasses on.

Sincerely,

Professor Sincere Bootsy
