Open Mic Night

Last Friday, I got really brave and read a few segments from my book at the open mic night at Writer’s and Books.  The comments I received were positive.  I guess they heard me over the knocking of my knees.

I keep trying new things in the hopes that it will build my confidence enough so that I may one day be able to publish my work.  Right now, I’m still feeling that it isn’t good enough.  In the last few weeks, I am noticing that the members of the Tuesday night writer’s group are giving me more positive feedback and fewer suggestions for change.  Also, I am beginning to get a handle on the dreaded “SHOW DON’T TELL”.

About suesmemoir

I'm a retired business teacher with a new endeavor. I'm hooked on creating a memoir for my family. I've been reading books about writing and taking college classes in order to make my work come alive. This is my first attempt at creative non-fiction. Prior to becoming engrossed in the craft of writing, I wrote college term papers and business letters. Please join me as I share the process with you and continue on my journey of memoir writing.
