I had successes in my 30s that got me noticed that gave me a boost of confidence that I didn’t have before. I feel happy that I can enjoy blogging and being a writer. I’ve been reading memoirs lately. I enjoy reading memoirs. They are the kinds of books that give you a glimpse into a person’s life. Memoirs are often written by people who do MFA programs in Memoir Writing like Krystal Sital who is an NJCU alumna has an excellent memoir called Secrets We Kept. I also read Margaux Fragoso’s memoir called Tiger, Tiger and it was an international best seller. I wrote my own memoir that I’m working on. The memoirs I have read on Dr. Giunta’s syllabus are great. I met Margaux Fragoso one time at a campus event Dr. Giunta had. Margaux had such sweet brown eyes. I was invited to an on-campus event Dr. Giunta had at NJCU. She’ll be back in January 2020. I look forward to seeing her and Dr. Fausty as well.
