MEMOIR WORKSHOP: My “Better Read Than Real” chapter stirred up a lot of memories! One of my readers, my long-time friend Marylee MacDonald, who offers the most useful writer information blog I’ve ever seen, responded with this wonderful piece from Eudora Welty: http://writing.laccdssi.org/files/2014/10/Welty.pdf. Eudora’s writing is so beautiful and impossible to live up to that I almost hesitate to include it, my own efforts paling beside it. But we dance on. If you have joined the dance, or have entertained intentions to, waste not a second (after first reading Eudora) signing up for Marylee’s essential writing blog: https://maryleemacdonald.org/writing-blog.
