We have a family living nearby who also adopted (three) siblings from Russian, and have an older teenage daughter. Please keep us posted; the book sounds great!
This book sounds fascinating. Is there any more you can say about it now; is it out?
Thanks for asking. I didn't notice this question until today. I'm in the process of writing my memoir. Of course, as I write, I publish into my blog. My hope is to transition from blog to published memoir.
I'm currently focusing on my life now as a widowed, single parent but will occasionally delve into my history that includes incest, a past that's slightly more complicated, difficult to write about.
My thinking is if I just start writing, I said if I JUST START WRITING the rest will come and believe me, it's a tsunami. It's the way I'm wired. For some reason, where my memoir is concerned, I do fits and spurts as opposed to chapters at a time.
A former boss once said, "I believe in good rewriting. Rarely is the first draft final." So, for me, I'm drafting my first pages. I wish I would write it faster but this is the process God has mapped out for me.
I LOVE WRITING and look forward to my first published book.
Today (actually yesterday) I posted the second installment of my "Blog therapy" series titled, "The Joy of Gardening." It's actually become that blog I'll turn into a book someday. Read it now so you can say you read it before it was a polished novel.
Feel free to follow me on here on She Writes, Twitter, Facebook and/or Scribd.
Yet another memoir installment on my blog
Did your child do something so outrageous that you just had to laugh, I mean turn around and laugh because you didn't want them to think what they just did was okay even though it seemed to come right out of a sitcom?
Please let me add that tonite on my InnerGiggler Radio show I have special guest Victoria Zackheim, an incredible writer/editor, who teaches Memoir thru UCLA extension. 5 of her Anthologies have been published, one book of fiction, and one of the anthologies is being adapted as a stage play opening on the west coast next year.
