$10 Dollar Investment
I refused to buy a new bike, but my in-between child was hitting his knees on his handlebars so not buying a bike wasn’t an option either.  And so, for that reason, I left the boys with their griping father on a typical, miserable, gray Pittsburgh Saturday ...

Wage Peace: Part 2 Listening and Humor
I’ve made about a dozen transglobal trips.  They never work the way I expect them to;
something always goes wrong.  I’ve been
stranded in airports, rerouted through cities I never expected, and once kept
from boarding because of a visa issue until they actu...

Life Is Beautiful
Recently, I've heard a bunch of people start talking about how they're story is "supposed" to go, and I want to examine that idea and how it relates to the life writer. First off, while many people would say that there's no "supposed to" in writing, I would...

Intelligences and Senses Part 3
Once again, our focus on intelligences and senses highlights ways to make our "showing" more telling.  In other words, by paying attention to the way our details highlight ways our brains work, thereby moving our writing from merely descriptive to poignant ...

Not Your Mother's Grace - Elizabeth, 37
“Do you want a cup of tea?” Mom asked. No, I really wanted to say.   I’d rather have a hug. But Mom’s not a hugger, and, truth be told, neither am
I. “Sure,” I said. “Since you’re right there, why don’t you start the
water?” I grabbed the electric teapot, t...

Don't Take It Personally...Not
Some times are harder than others.  In the middle of whatever it is that plagues
you, in my case, in the sleepless nights of anxiety attacks after autism
meltdowns, after the grieving for terminally and/or chronically sick friends,
after the listening to ab...

Distance
Ask any writer, and they'll tell you the same thing:  writing can be a very emotional process.  I frequently hear even fiction writers lament writing difficult scenes for their characters.  These stresses only become compounded when you write them about you...

Wage Peace: Part 1
The other morning, I was tired, and not just because I woke up to fight the renegade toilet at 4 something AM (because, honestly, although I'm good at remembering numbers, I'm not good at reading the display of the clock at that hour). So I did what any wom...

So we've been talking about the intelligences and how they help us paint pictures in our stories.  As we mentioned earlier, most of our memoirs are fundamentally about interpersonal relationships (our relationships with important people in our families) or ...

What Mother Means to Me - Toney, 54
She’s the one who kept me clean and made sure that I was fed; The one who washed my clothes and always made my bed. She’s the one who cares more than anyone and if I said differently I’d be a liar; The one willing to make any sacrifice that is required. She...

Different Kinds of Pictures
In our last class, one of our group members said, "This writing paints a picture.  Lots of writers paint pictures, but there are different kinds of pictures." Voila! I've never heard it said so clearly before!  Yes! The best writing will make us feel like w...
