These all sounds like good reasons to consider how important writing can be.
I have enjoyed working on my memoir and am still not done yet. The advanced memoir writing class will begin on October 11 and run until November 15. That's six weeks, twice as long as the beginning class held over the summer. Another session of the beginning class was just held, so I can expect to see some of the people who were in that session as well as some of the others who were in the summer class with me. It's been a while since I worked on the memoir and am still uncertain where to look for an editor in my area. I am excited to see what I will learn in the advanced class and to see how m,any other people turn out for this class.
For the last week or so, I wrote more on my attempt at a diary novel set in the 1980s. This was the decade in which I grew up, so I know plenty about that era. I stumped a girl at work when I said that one of my chapters was titled "Preparing for Life Behind Bars," taken from this news story headline from 1982. Would you have been stumped by such a line before knowing what it really was referring to? This is one part of the story. Others at work said that this sounds like a good story.
I'm hoping to get inspired to write something else as well.
How many stories can you write at once?
