A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #114

Start with your own interests. You should be curious about people, events, documents, or problems considered in the course. This curiosity should make you pose some questions naturally. [ . . . ] The good historian is a questioner.

– from the section, “Step 1: Find A Topic,” in chapter four, “Gathering Information and Writing Drafts,” in A Short Guide To Writing About History, Third Edition by Richard Marius
