Article by Brandon Taylor profiles Chris Hafer, a DeSales junior, and creative writer. While in high school, Hafer wanted to become an athletic trainer. He changed his mind, when he came to DeSales and was able to write more imaginatively. Hafer prefers fiction, but also writes essays on a range of topics. "It's not about writing, but rather reading stories," said Hafer, who has refined his fictional writing skills through classes he is taking. He credits Dr. Lois Gadek, who assigned stories by great authors, such as Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Alan Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and then gave quizzes on them. He advises those who want to write to start writing now. "If you're opinionated, if you just have a plot in your head, get started and follow whatever thoughts are on your mind."
