SIDELIGHTS:

Rebecca Bloom told CA: "I often say that writing has been an accidental career, because I never considered that writing, something I have done since I was a little girl scribbling bad poetry in pink journals, would be what I was always supposed to do. Luckily for me, with the support of my family, I got to explore what has always made me the happiest. I love words; I love the music they make next to each other, how a phrase can be turned inside out with an adjective.

"I write to understand my own voice, to understand, I guess, my internal song, and hope that it is something familiar to someone else. I write when I am inspired and hope it isn't when I am driving and have to do it in lipstick pencil, which I had to do the other day. I am inspired by everyday life, the small moments we have with ourselves when no one's looking, the small moments we have with each other.

"As I get older (I am still only twenty-eight), I hope that more gets thrown my way that I have to ponder and process—more humanity, more silly, embarrassing anecdotes. I can't wait."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
