When I first started writing, I was swept away. It became a passion, I think because it offered me surprise. As I discovered the artist within and found new ways of expression writing introduced me to new joys.
I am surprised by the way memoir writing has changed the way I see the world. I look at moments and connections differently. Substance for my memoir writing is everywhere. Each tiny moment-such as a father and son walking into a restaurant together, laughing-suddenly captures the truth of love and connection. A photograph shines with the essence of a dear friend.
The process of memoir writing also continues to surprise me: the way a page unfolds differently each time.
Start together by finding that artist within, welcome those surprises that are waiting to be re-discovered!
