Stratosphere-Dwelling Microbes?

Cool stuff! We know that life extends far deeper into the earth than we could have imagined a few years ago. Now a University of Washington researcher is looking for life in the upper atmosphere: Stratosphere-Dwelling Microbes Could Inform Mars Life Hunt | Space.com.

  1. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

      Regarding writing: just begin. If you picked a good spot to begin, the story will scroll out in a pleasing and sensible order. If not, you’ll know pretty soon. Scrap that and start someplace else. Writing — at least the way I do it — is a craft, not an art, and the best thing you can do is practice.
