Well, wouldn’t you know it. Just when I stop compiling responses to bite size prompts, I get the most humbling and honest, soul-bearing collection of responses from strong and courageous survivors (along with a trapped testicle from Geoff, which is – well – uncatagorizable! But I think he too, survived..) Continue reading “Bite Size Memoir “Bad Hair Day””
Bite Size Memoir Challenge is back!
I would love to inspire you to write up a few memories or self explorations in small, manageable bites. This post goes on to explain why (and how), with a roundabout exploration of E.M.
