Memoir is about writing fact – you are telling the truth. Fiction Writing is about using your imagination. Autobiographical Fiction is taking nuggets of your life experiences and translating them into Fiction. It is a very powerful form of writing. So if you have a burning feeling within to write your story, but you don’t want to expose yourself or others. What can you do?

I’m Irish. A country girl born and reared in the land of Saints and Scholars. Somehow, and gratefully, in my life search for meaning, I found writing. And story. Words feed my soul. Right-brain/left-brain learning processes feed my creativity.
For 30 years I’ve passed on what I’ve learned as a lover of story and believer in words. When I haven’t got a pen in my hand it’s my camera. To clear my thoughs, I head out into the garden, and grapple with the weeds.
This is my blog. I muse about all things writing. Share Ireland with you. And use this blog as my image gallery.
