Taos and writing

I met with Debra after breakfast this morning and discussed my writing , the blocks I’ve been experiencing, ways to move forward, the status of memoir, publishing outlets, other writers, etc. She rocks. After her feedback and the workshop yesterday, I’m totally re-energized to write a few of these essays:

  1. parallels between voluntary divorce (today) and involuntary dissolution of plural marriages (~1898)
  2. the required divorce education class in Utah
  3. collegiality, colleague, departmental relationships
  4. losing a child: two kids killed in car accident

Basically, Debra gave me permission to shift from “memoir” to the personal essay, which makes me ecstatic. For so long I’ve been thinking that I must write a memoir…why? The essay may just be my natural form.
