The memoir-writing, I mean.
Actually, it feels way too intimidating to call it that (though that is, indeed, what I expect I’ll end up with at the end of this process — which, given my university life, could take a year … or multiple years … and that’s okay with me; I have scheduled writing times but no deadline for this).
Right now I’m taking Anne Lamott’s advice (really, her father’s) and tackling it “bird by bird.” One tiny piece of a single vignette, one little glimpse, into a moment in time. A verbal snapshot.
I’m not trying to do more than that right now.
Back to it …
