I was researching my book when, the other day, I recalled a story that I had written almost forty years ago and I thought might be useful, if I could find it. I dug through copies of magazines and came up empty. I began rifling through old files folders and, pack rat that I am, discovered that I had saved the folder that contained my interview notes, along with the draft.
This was great. Thank you. Of all the writing advise newsletters on here, you model placing yourself within the story such that the reader-writer is drawn toward a lesson in craft in a way that feels something like coming home. Love it and grateful.
Thank you! Between reading this latest post, then finding Chapter 75 I discovered why I had subscribed to Writerland so many forgotten chapters ago.
I’m in what I refer to as the last quarter of the last quarter of my life. I had decided to commit my life, warts, joys, disasters, all into a memoir.
After today, I’m going back to those events
Note: don’t use your iPhone to type! If I can glean one smidge of wisdom from stumbling onto your writing, it’s to to not workshop this. But that could be my tissue paper memory. Anyway, back to the past.
I’d be honored for your opinion on the final version (one) when I’m done-unless my game clock runs out.
