Hey there! I recently started a publication, so please come join us and write. I've named it The Narrative Arc. Initially, I chose a different name but after designing all the avatars, headers, etc. I couldn't use any of it. That name had been chosen.
As a long-time writer and teacher, I remembered some advice I got from my first editor. When I was writing my memoir, she met with me to give feedback.
What you need here, she said, is a narrative arc.
Anyway, thanks for coming to read about me.
Author of "Love and Loss in Cambodia: a memoir."
Nonfiction widely published in Miracle Monocle, The Write Launch, Two Sisters, Open: Journal of Arts & Letters, and NYMBM
Over 240 stories published in Medium
I've walked the Camino de Santiago three times, and I love to travel alone. I'm fine with a backpack and a money belt. I know which fork to use at a 5-star. Versatile!
Think nature. History. Culture. Drinks!
This is a photo of me when I was on the Mekong River, between Thailand and Laos.This was about thirty years ago.
When I was a little kid, I loved reading and writing. I used to hole up in the attic and pull a chain to turn on a single lightbulb.
Happy to be here writing, and I have several writer friends here I love reading!
