Hi Nan...thank you for the warm welcome to She Writes. I'm looking forward to reading some of the group's work and maybe getting some inspiration from you. I am at the beginning stages of writing at this time. I have always wanted to write a memoir but I find the format so predictable and boring. i learned about a poem through a Language Arts teacher, called Mama Where Are You From? It was an eighth grade assignment to write your own poem using the format. I tried it just for fun and found that I loved the writing process. The experience prompted me to write more and now I can't seem to stop...the memories are flooding back into my consciousness.....62 years worth of them, so I have alot of material to draw from....just need to get it all down on paper!
