[THE WRITER'S LIFE] Think Differently

Posted by Cindy Eastman on August 17, 2015 at 7:30am 0 Comments



Think different.



You just edited me didn't you?



I did the same thing each morning I walked into the computer lab in which I helped the upcoming generation navigate the dangers of the Internet and the vagaries of Microsoft Word. Those Apple Think Different posters hung on the walls of my room and every single day I silently thought, "Think Different-ly." I really thought it would make as much sense if it were grammatically correct. This was years ago when I worked in an elementary school and my ambitions to be A Writer were wedged around being a single parent, staying gainfully employed and putting gas in the car.

The Catch-22 of Memoir Writing

Posted by Jessica Barraco on August 21, 2015 at 4:11pm 3 Comments

When I started to write The Butterfly Groove, which follows my search for answers among my mother’s mysteries from her past, a decade after losing her, I had a hope that I set too high on my list of Miracle Writer Tactics. Not only was I going to write a great book with journalistic integrity, unravel a thrilling family mystery, and, tell it from a dual perspective, I was also going to open people’s minds about who my mother was to them. I was going to make them see why she behaved poorly sometimes, and greatly others. They were going to reassess and empathize that her being sick for nearly 20 years takes a toll on somebody, and that she couldn’t be blamed for her illnesses, as a lot of them liked to believe.

it can just as easily happen to you.

It Matters

But how often do we say something like "Oh, it's no big deal," when someone compliments us on a job well done? And then how often do we then walk away feeling bad about ourselves, while the person who just gave us the compliment walks away perplexed?

But what if, when that person said "Job well done"…
