looking back/looking forward

Rereading my blog posts for 2012–and saving them into a Word document, I’m paranoid about losing stuff–I discovered that I haven’t talked much about work, writing, research, and the stuff I originally started my blog to do. Obviously I needed to write about the changes in my personal life…it is so front and center now. Every morning when I wake up, my divorce is the first thing I think of. I have to force myself to think of other things, to pick up a book and start reading instead. I wonder when/if that will change?

Anyway, I’m encouraging myself to focus on the memoir stuff for a while. So I’ll write an email to B.K. Loren, the woman who is leading the beginning memoir workshop I’m taking at the Taos Summer Writers Conference. She titled the workshop “Songs of Innocence and Experience: Finding the Core of Your Memoir and wants an email about our writing goals. Once I’ve written that, I’ll post it here. Meanwhile, I’m working on another publication outlet for the firefighting piece–ISLE rejected it but gave me good feedback.

More to come…
