A retired legal secretary, Sherrey Meyer grew tired of drafting and revising pleadings and legal documents. She had always dreamed of writing something else, anything else! Once she retired she couldn’t stay away from the computer, and so she began to write. Among her projects is a memoir of her “life with mama,” an intriguing Southern tale of matriarchal power and control displayed in verbal and emotional abuse. Sherrey is married and lives with husband Bob in Milwaukie, OR.

Personally, if confronted with writer's block, I turn to another activity, i.e. a walk outside, reading, a household chore, quilting or knitting. Usually a change of activity releases me from whatever I'm writing and opens my mind to a freedom not present when I was writing. With a clear mind, I can usually return to writing and pick up where I left off.(less)

What if you woke up one day, living with a family member who had changed into an entirely different person? What if she were an older sibling you had always admired and strived to be like? And what if you were an insecure preteen when it all started? What would that do to your life?

The post From the Corner of the Oval by Beck Dory-Stein | Memoir Review appeared first on The Writing Studio.
