What Keeps Your Door Closed?

Today I’m over at The Gift of Writing with a guest post about the challenges of excavating our past, of choosing to sift through painful memories and then writing them down for all to see.

I’ve been a fan of Claire De Boer and her site ever since I first came across a guest post she wrote about the importance of writing your personal story. At the time, I was primarily writing fiction, but it reminded me that the more intimately we know ourselves, the more authentically we can write about others.

I’m honored to be one of Claire’s regular contributors and I hope you will visit The Gift of Writing to read my post, “What Keeps Your Door Closed?”

    • Thank you so much Khaula. I’m very sorry you’re having a hard time with writing, believe me, I’ve been there. I think it’s part of the package, of being a writer, experiencing ebbs and flows. The ebbs are tough. Sometimes it helps to switch gears, take a pause with what’s troubling you, or write a journal entry, or find a writing prompt. Anything to get through the rough spot. Good luck, and let me know how it goes.
