The Best of She Writes 2010 List - Add the Favorite Post YOU Wrote in Comments!

There are many posts from the She Writes Blog that seriously qualify for this list, and I'm as sick of year end "Top 10" lists as the next gal right about now.  But, well, I just couldn't resist.  (Yes, Tayari, I am VERY BAD at staycation!) Here's a list of some of our faves.  I'm cheating a little, because some of these are from 2009.  Full disclosure: they're the posts that are listed on our Popular Articles page.

It's such a gift, Deborah, to share your list and make the reading burden a little easier for 10,000-some women! And make the inspiration curve higher by doing so.

So  sweet.

This is one of my favorite posts:  It doesn't fit into any of the categories above.  It's not sad, or healing, or cathartic.  I like it because I learned a lot by being a child; especially looking back (!)

Thanks, Deborah.  It's nice to know that people like what I'm doing.

It's Deborah here -- these faves can be ANYTHING you've written, ANYWHERE!  All the better if they're on the SW Community Blog, but not necessary.  Just share what you're most proud of is all!

I love all my posts! But here is my latest:

I began my blog when I began to write in English in the spring of 2010. Every post is meaningful to me as an exploration, not only of myself, but of this new language as my new medium, too. One of my favorite posts may well be one from the series "A City of Memories," at ("A City of Memories III"). This particular post describes a moment when past and present, and different geographies (the US and Portugal), blended in
unexpected ways, as they tend to do in my life.

I so enjoyed coming more fully in to the circle here on shewrites .

My writing was hugely impacted by my Mom's death.

I have so enjoyed writing the blog posts about her and me, fueled by gratitude and cherishing on my website

When I allow myself time to write about Mom, that space, that creative flow is so energized, I love what I write. There is more for me to mine there.

I too am excited for all that 2011 holds for me- central to that is my non-fiction book proposal for Laundry Line Divine: A Wild Soul Book for Women.
