I was at Memoirfest. I am so happy that I went. I shared the first two pages of my memoir Memories of Me. I got so much positive feedback and even some nice comments from other students and alum. I was not expecting that to happen. I never would have gotten all of these positive comments, questions, and feedback if I had not gone to Memoirfest and been shy that night on December 12, 2014. It was a great night for me. I really enjoyed the work of all the other memoir students and alum. I am going to be taking Advanced Memoir Writing in the Spring and I am looking forward to writing a longer more polished piece but I am also looking forward to the writing process, writing in my Process Journal, reading specific chapters in Living to Tell the Tale and Writing as a Way of Healing(myself).
