Quote: Our Stories

“We often forget that by offering up our stories, we help others understand their own. In this way, memoir is not self-indulgent but a roadmap for the human experience.”

Artis Henderson, Author of Unremarried Widow: A Memoir

    Great quote Lynette

    1. I know when you share on your blog, it’s helping you but sometimes bloggers fail to understand the depth to which they are helping the people who read their posts. I’m greatly indebted to the bloggers that share their experiences. Thank you Cat.

  3. Reblogged this on WRITTEN REFLECTIONS and commented:
    A beautiful quote for memoir writers. I vacillate back and forth between feeling self-indulgent and selfless. But I think that is a good thing; it prevents me from getting too comfortable.

    1. I think it’s a good thing too! I absolutely love this quote for its veracity. And I’m glad you took the time to stop by and comment. Thank you so much Lynn.

    1. I think so too–the quote and memoirs.

  4. I just told my story yesterday on a radio show…I was nervous at first and then I just spoke my truth…It was great!
