– I had my first dose of an outer critic today. I was questioned by a family member if I know how to forgive and why am I writing this book. It distanced me from the pen for awhile and then I continued on.
I think people get confused or scared when they know someone close is writing a memoir when they know your childhood has left something to desire. Writing is not a vengeance. Everything I have learnt tells us to write truthful and that is what I shall continue to do.
I always say…….”Forgive those who know not what they do.”
