The Catch-22 of Memoir Writing

Posted by Jessica Barraco on August 21, 2015 at 4:11pm 2 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. (“She was too stressed out, they’d say, “She was her own worst enemy”).

My mom was particular and private. Two characteristics that typically society isn’t thrilled with, I’ve…

Every month I feature a fellow author on my blog, Creating the WRITE Reality. Someone whose work I admire, and who I have met either in person or online that has enriched my life through publishing, writing, or just reading.

This month, I have a real treat for everyone. Please welcome romantic suspense writer, Fiona Quinn, to Creating the WRITE Reality! I connected with Fiona on Twitter almost two years ago. Honestly, when I first saw her lovely bio picture, my first thought was “Cool! Reese Witherspoon with guns.” From a marketing perspective, that made her immediately memorable to me. Celeb lookalike references aside, Fiona writes a popular kickass blog for writers called Thrillwriting,…

Introducing Audio Posts!

"Oh, I like this blog! I wish I can listen to it instead of reading the posts."

I always thought it would be so useful to have the choice to listen to blog posts while doing our work, chores and activities.

This is why I have decided to launch audio posts and experience this new addition to my blog.

I hope you enjoy this new…

My Wise Old Owl


These grey winter days I’ve been reading up a storm on Kindle. I prefer the feel of a book in my hands, but, living in Chile, English books are not readily available. Usually, on my yearly visits to California, I return with a supply of books but this last visit was different. My husband and I hauled back fifty copies of my memoir in backpacks and cloth shopping bags. No space for my personal reading choices. The problem with a Kindle book is that I need to underline…

Googling my way through Life

[While living abroad, on my own, for the first time ever]

*Attempts to boil an egg*


*Calls mom, no answer*

SOLUTION! *Googles: How to boil an egg*

This is not the first, nor the last time I have been through this situation.

Even after coming back home, whenever I need to do something that I haven’t before, the first thing I do is go to Google and type my question or whatever task I’m trying to achieve.

Envy and Ambition: The Writing Life.

Some time ago when I was an actor, a dear friend got a dream part, that of a strong, successful creature, a woman with a woman's sexuality, not a man's fantasy versions of it. Plus, she got to age 40 years without the benefit of makeup. 

She was…
