Before the fall semester started, before the house hunting, before the summer vacation, there was a dedicated band of folks awaiting with bated breath the posting of the memoir info from our last workshop class. There’s an adage about trying harder and failing better, so I will take that, in this case, to be synonymous with that other adage, about better being late than never. Apologies and deepest love.
Extra sources I pulled from during class included M. Shannon Hernandez on HuffPo and Creative Writing Now. The book I taught from and read aloud in class from was On Writing Well by William Zinsser.
Thank you for your supreme patience. See you back for more pep talks and the exhilarating experience that is Nano.
Hey y’all, I just wanted you to know I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet. I owe everybody the memoir recap from the most recent workshop class and it is patiently waiting on my computer for me to get my act together. I’ve been working on a solo project, http://jjobe.svbtle.com/, for the summer semester. (I’ve also made it available here http://justcallmejobe.weebly.com/, in case I decide to stop paying for Svbtle.) But I’ve also been looking for a “forever home” for myself and my family, which has taken up gobs of my conscious and unconscious life of late. I hope to return to regular posting before long, and I thank you for your patience and dedication! Until next time.
Keep Writing the Good Write,
