The process of writing my memoir was therapy for me even if I never publish it.

I wrote a memoir and suddenly I felt like I had gotten emotions out that were hard for me to feel but the memoir writing process was great for me. So far I have over 223 pages and I even have three contained memoir pieces that are 10 -15 pages per piece each. I want to give my thanks to Edvige Giunta. Edi is such a wonderful person to have a student/writer relationship with. She cares about me and I care about and appreciate her. She is so cool the way she teaches memoir at NJCU and other English courses. I think it’s very cool how Edi has a syllabus that requires a Composition notebook to use as a process journal to write your pieces in.
