Alicia Jamtaas

Bellingham

Early in life, Alicia wrapped her fingers around a pencil, put lead to note paper and began stringing words together in an effort to form perfect sentences that sparkled like glistening glass beads on a necklace. One word, two words, three - a sentence. One sentence connected to another - a paragraph, four. The thrill of paragraph after paragraph blending (gently or with great power) into a page, a chapter, a manuscript.
