Writer Interview: Del Carter

This week's writer interview is with Del Carter! Del is a pre-medicine sophomore at the University of Florida pursuing a B.A. in Political Science. He talks about the women who have supported and inspired his writing, and the importance of leaving his words open to interpretation - a writing technique we particularly love at Peeking Cat!

Do You Get Writing Ideas From Your Dreams?

Last night I had a dream that I went to a writing group for the first time. The leader of the group asked us to spend 25 minutes writing about a real person, so I began writing a poem about a friend who I haven't seen for a while. But I was having trouble writing it, because the letters I wrote kept changing once they were on the page. I also lost ten minutes because I had to go home and find a notebook, as I had arrived unprepared.
