today's blog tour stop: the role of rhetoric

Today's blog tour stop takes us to A Mediated Life, the blog belonging to my good friend Susan Miller-Cochran. Susan is one of those rhet-comp superstars I wrote about in FAKING IT and is the kind of writing program administrator I envisioned Andi to be.

This time I discuss how rhetoric came to play a role in *Faking It*. I was never schooled in literature or literary theory (even though I took a couple of lit classes as an undergrad); rather, I write fiction rhetorically. And I like it that way because I think it brings a new dynamic to the novel, although I couldn't put my finger on what that is, exactly.

Anyhoo, enjoy A Mediated Life. Tomorrow, onto the wonderful sarahfim!
