Kathleen B. Jones commented on the blog post 'The Great Competition for the Saddest Story Ever Told'
"Brava, Amalia. Insightful responses to the post. I especially resonated with this: "Even a relentlessly bleak ending can be inspiring in its own way—if nothing else, to remind us that life is immensely more complicated and nuanced than TV…"

Memoir and Credibility

In his marvelous essay, "Levels of Reality in Literature," found in the collection of essays entitled The Uses of Literature, Italo Calvino writes about the "I" who writes. "The preliminary condition of any work of literature is that the person who is writing has to invent that first character, who is the author of the work." (111) And this is no simple process. This first character, the "author,"…See More

Kathleen B. Jones commented on the blog post 'The Great Competition for the Saddest Story Ever Told'
""You have to be aware that the reader is not your therapist, even as they are a witness, and that in every tragedy or dark time, there's hope or goodness or art at the end of the process." Insightful commentary, Erin. Helps very much…"

Hi Kathy,
I saw that you had created a page or a link on here and thought I would say hi! Things are going well. I'm attending a writing conference in SF in August--it's out of Bookpassages--a bookstore. Looking forward to being in CA again, even if it's not quite as perfectly sunny as San Diego! I wrote a short piece about She Writes for our local town website. http://montclair.patch.com/articles/she-writes-grows-into-largest-online-resource-for-women-writers
A bit rough in its editing, but, it was fun to feature the site!

Hope another Arendt summer is going well!

Delighted to have you join us the Novelist group. You might jump in by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on.

And I'm looking at your list of books: women and politics - I am SO interested. (Member of Emily's List, and on the fringes up a group up here called EMERGE, trying to provide a structure for women interested in running for office to learn how.) I will absolutely look for your books.
