I've been encouraged to write memoirs. I won't get into the up side -- the pluses -- or the minuses -- the down side. But the thought has intrigued me. I've written lots of glimpses into my life for years now, mostly in short form or poetry. A longer form of writing has been calling to me, and as with a lot of things many are called but few are chosen.
When I began writing poetry I wrote mostly for myself. It was my voice I wanted to hear, my point of view. I wrote to find out what I had to say, not because I had something to say. In writing I heard my voice, myself, and my point of view loudly and clearly. Writing memoirs seems like a logical progression form the blinks I've allowed into my life.
The working title for my first collection of memoirs I'm using:
Glances in the rear view mirror
Maybe that will change, maybe I'll keep it. We'll see what happens.
If you're checking in here, you'll be catching some of the rough drafts I write.
Most of my drafts will be hidden, and available only for my subscribers.
I guess that's it.
