The point I think is not to let the idea of "writer's block" be an excuse for not working. It helps to remind myself that pediatricians or firemen don't get to say anything like: "Gee, I'm just not feeling it today. Come back tomorrow with your problem." (less)

imagesLast week, I led a workshop on memoir writing at a local senior center. Amazing stories came out, funny, sad, and precious. Here’s a variant of an exercise we did that I think would be useful for writers, and just people living in families with people who are not exactly, precisely like ourselves.


HOW DID S/HE GET THAT WAY?


Think of family member (living or dead) with a strong characteristic,...

The premise of Your Face in Mine is utterly intriguing, not only the overt subject of racial reassignment, but also at the metaphoric level of someone who both is and is not the person we knew. So I plunged in. But attention flagged. Neither of the t

Topics Mentioning This Author

“We kissed. It was the bright sweetness of lemons, the warmth of fresh bread and the comfort of home after a long voyage.p. 305”
Schoenewaldt

“....Yes, San Francisco was far from all I longed to forget. But I was weary of the flat earth, the heat of summer and hard press of winter cold. The etchings in "Scribners" made me yearn for the loop and roll of land. I wanted to break free of the squeeze of buildings and streets running endlessly out to the horizon. p. 254”

Pamela Schoenewaldt Writers and readers, consider sharing your book/s with inmates, Prison libraries are underfunded; often inmates can only receive 4 approved books/month; many can't afford any. Sandi Burch's Books Behind Walls program handles paperwork for Georgia inmates. She contacted me through Goodreads and I'll be sending her a copy of SWIMMING IN THE MOON. If you have books to share, send them to Sandi Burch, 2142 Butler Ferry Rd, Bainbridge GA 39817. I'm sure other states have similar programs.
