Owning our story can be hard but not nearly
as difficult as spending our lives running
from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is
risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up
on love and belonging and joy—the experiences
that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we
are brave enough to explore the darkness will we
discover the infinite power of our light.
~ Brené Brown
It is easy to write. Just sit in front of your
typewriter and bleed.
Memoir isn’t the summary of a life;
it’s a window into a life, very much
like a photograph in its selective
composition. It may look like a casual and
even random calling up of bygone events. It’s
not; it’s a deliberate contruction.
~William Zinsser, On Writing Well
Until Next Time…
