Eight Days Early

Rain is falling this gray Seattle morning. Autumn is eight days early. Is it already time to settle in, collect, or perhaps organize, your tall stack of must-reads for the inclement weather ahead?

For some it might also be the season to re-dedicate time for writing. To begin, or perhaps complete, that memoir you’ve carried in the back of your mind throughout the summer months. The memoir you’ve been telling yourself you’ll write when you have the time.

Now’s the time! Join me to celebrate the autumnal equinox by learning some writing tips that will get you back in that chair long enough to produce a memoir you’ll be proud to have written. Whether you already have a pile of pages or the ideas are still in your head, join me for a free workshop to explore a path to completion!

Pen and Paper - Always!

Despite the heavy smoke that blankets the Pacific Northwest, Coupeville is a gem. I am grateful to Debbie Lagassé of Sno-Isle Libraries for inviting me to present and to the dedicated writers who attended my memoir workshop.
Light traffic and a ferry allowed an early arrival. I wandered the small town and dock, ate at the hotdog stand, and gawked at the deer and fawns on the beach.
The two-hour workshop seemed to end before it started with lots of sharing of ideas and experiences. In conversation afterwards, Kevin Fristad, author of Dead Geese Flying, mentioned carrying a notecard and pen to jot ideas as they surface. We shared a laugh when I pulled out my tiny notebook. Reminder to writers: Carry pen and paper always!
