We are in the middle of the National Novel Writing month, where it is everyone’s goal to reach 50,000 words towards a new novel. I am happy to share I have written 12,000 plus words towards mine. Words I might not have written, were not for this opportunity. Thank you to those who have offered encouragement to me during this process which is by no means an easy thing to do!
It is awe-inspiring each time I read one of Howards letters and how he shares his heartfelt love through poetry and his artistic ability to draw little pictures. I have just sorted out all the letters and have began the process of documenting. This is a 6 month commitment for sure but I am encouraged as I teeter on the edge of a nostalgic memoir evolving.
Once again please feel free to leave an encouraging message or connect with me in other ways.
Yes Nanowrimo is here again! and I decided to join this year. I will be taking the month of November to start a draft manuscript of a book I comprised a few years ago. After the passing of my mother in law, we found a bag of love letters in the bottom of her closet. These love letters were written in the 1940’s after the war, the year they were courting. Yes that is what they used to call dating. My how dating has changed but falling in love is timeless. These letters were given to me to use as I wish. I cherished my mother in law, even after her son & I divorced, she remained a major role in our family’s life.
The memoir “The Courtship of Gwendolyn Eve” comes from my heart to yours. A distant whisper calling us to court.
