I created this website to accompany my English master’s thesis/final project, the first draft of my memoir. In addition to writing and revising 141 pages, I explored the how-tos of creating an internet platform that will be necessary when I’m finally ready to pitch the memoir to agents and publishers. I also wanted to gauge the reception of yet another memoir about mother/daughter relationships and defend its relevance to my jury of three English faculty last spring. From the comments my posts have received, as well as from engaging in others’ blogs in this expansive WordPress community, I’ve had the privilege of meeting others whose depth and words remained with me through the nine months it took to write the first draft and helped me in ways I couldn’t have imagined. To all who have taken the time to stop by and read this website, I thank you for sharing your experiences and wisdom.
