– In Memoir – Writing Truth

WRITING

Outer Critics

 

– 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.”
