“I’ve never met many of my best friends. I’ve read them, as if all their words were letters meant for me. You have no idea who’s waiting for your work. Don’t leave them friendless.” ~Martha Beck
There was a time — before I used a computer — when I wrote my columns and essays in my journals, and later typed them into manuscripts for my editors. Even today, when I’m feeling stuck or blocked, I start scribbling random thoughts in a notebook.
If you live in the Detroit area, please join me at the Royal Oak Public Library next week for “Write Where You Are,” an evening workshop on how to use journaling prompts to jumpstart your memoirs and personal essays. The prompts will help you recall valuable life lessons and experiences that can be used as material for your memoirs, blog posts, or personal essays.
When and where: April 24, 2017, 7pm in the Royal Oak Public Library Friends Auditorium. This program is free to the public, but space is limited. Please phone the Royal Oak Public Library (248-246-3700) to reserve your space. Copies of my book, Writing Home, will be sold after the workshop at a special discount.
