On Writing: A Review of For My People
So, this just happened today. I am humbled by Lilaina's review of For My People, and have been near tears all day in anticipation.
For those of you who know me personally it might come as a shock to hear that I find it terribly difficult to talk about myself, including sharing a story and characters that I am completely obsessed with. Seems like it would be easy, but, for me, it isn't.
Most of us journal and then hide the journal. When we write it's as if we've put a piece of ourselves on paper for the world to see and to judge.
I would love to sit with any one of you and talk about the beautiful basalt columns along the Columbia River or the astonishing feat salmon accomplish as they migrate home or how exactly smart historian people believe an atlatl worked.
But alas, it remains hard for me.
And as time passes, bringing my story and my characters up again gets harder and harder.
So, here's to a new day.
Read this, and let me know your thoughts.
Also, I am writing again and have been for some time.
I will tell you more.
