If You're Writing a Memoir Keep the Kleenex Handy
I started writing the sequel to "Don't Be Give Up," several times and slowly, inch by inch, I wrote several chapters. The other day I was writing about a special time in my life when my dad and I went fishing together and saw a movie about Will Rogers. It was a happy time, but when I read it to my husband, Joe, I burst into tears. I surprised both of us. My tears came because two months later my dad died. I was angry because just as I was beginning to know my dad, he was gone. I am determined to finish my book, but I know there will be other times when the tears will come.
