IMG_0384“Publication and temporary creative successes are something you have to recover from. They kill as many people as not. They will hurt, damage and change you in ways you cannot imagine. The most degraded and sometimes nearly-evil men I have known were all writers who’d had bestsellers. Yet, it is also a miracle to get your work published. Just try to bust yourself gently of the fantasy that publication will heal you, will fill the Swiss cheesey holes. It won’t, it can’t. But writing can. So can singing.” — Anne Lamott, from her essay on turning 61

  1. Hello Ms. La Ferle,

    I am writing to ask that I be put on whatever list you may have so that I could receive your writings every day/week/month/ or however you write.

    I am 67…68 in October of this year…and have quite a few medical issues and problems. I need to read and focus on growing older…perhaps in a way that is not the most healthy. I used to have a view of myself aging…that is simply not going to be the case.

    I also write. I wrote my memoir (to 2010) and thought I would try to work to get it published…but then suddenly…I was unable to continue writing or working toward my goal in any way at all.

    I hope I will “get myself back…”

    Anyway, please let me know how to get your writing sent to me…ok?

    Thank you,

    Cheryl Bremer

    • Hi Cheryl,
      Thanks so much for asking about my writings. I don’t have a mailing list, but the best way to keep up with my writings is to visit this Web site periodically. I usually announce where to look for my pieces, and whenever possible, I provide the links to the pieces online (if the pieces are published online, that is). I do hope you will continue your own writing! – Cindy
