Years later, when I looked around and realized the joyful life I was living, I decided I had to tell my story to share my hope with others--it is possible to climb out of the abyss of poor decisions and go on to live a meaningful, peaceful life.(less)

Interview with Alison Sher on The Homecoming Retreat

Posted by Kathleen Pooler/@kathypooler with Alison Sher





I am very pleased to introduce you to Alison Sher. I first met Alison in 2014 when I attended a women’s writing conference where she was a speaker.

“Each of us is a book waiting to be written, and that book, if written, results in a person explained.”
Thomas M. Cirignano, The Constant Outsider

William Zinsser
“Write about small, self-contained incidents that are still vivid in your memory. If you remember them, it's because they contain a larger truth that your readers will recognize in their own lives. Think small and you'll wind up finding the big themes in your family saga. ”
William Zinsser

Gail Caldwell
“I know now that we never get over great losses; we absorb them, and they carve us into different, often kinder, creatures. ...We tell the story to get them back, to capture the traces of footfalls through the snow.”
Gail Caldwell, Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship

Remember that you own what happened to you. If your childhood was less than ideal,
“Remember that you own what happened to you. If your childhood was less than ideal, you may have been raised thinking that if you told the truth about what really went on in your family, a long bony white finger would emerge from a cloud and point to you, while a chilling voice thundered, "We *told* you not to tell." But that was then. Just put down on paper everything you can remember now about your parents and siblings and relatives and neighbors, and we will deal with libel later on.”
