Were you wondering why I didn’t publish a newsletter at the first of the year as I normally do? Well, my time was focused on a new baby granddaughter’s arrival and the publishing of my new book with two of my close friends. Both of these events involved a form of creativity and legacy and are significant parts of later life.
My granddaughter is literally a physical legacy that will be here long after I have left this world. My writing is another way to keep creativity flowing and leave a legacy in concrete form. Both births have expanded my world.
I have been writing with the same group of women on a monthly basis for close to 25 years now and two years ago we decided to self-publish a sample of our writing and to describe our creative process. It has been a challenging and exciting birthing process. I am very proud of our accomplishment. We had a book launch at the end of March in San Francisco with rave responses. Here is our announcement and options for ordering the book.
We are excited to announce the publication of our new book:
A Basket of Words
Twenty Years of Writing Together
Our anthology of stories, memoirs, essays and poetry
grew out of our deep friendship and
shared creative writing process over many years.
