  • Discovering My New Home

    This is an excerpt from a memoir I am thinking of calling either In Another Century or A Very Catholic Boy. I am 13, and in the previous excerpt, I have just arrived at the seminary high school where I will be living. The excerpt starts as I have brought my trunk up to the dormitory and we exit the room. I am with my parents, my grandmother my brother and two sisters. All the people in the story are bilingual.

    Kate Christensen talks about writing Blue Plate Special / An Autobiography of My Appetites and about writing in general.

It is an interesting concept, a theme, around which to make sense of a lifetime. If the memoir is, as Rainer Maria Rilke said of poetry, a momentary order, then Kate Christensen has done just that.

    The Memoir Writer’s Blog—a Successful Blog?

    This post is the 300th on my blog. I am amazed at the number. I realize that other blogs have more posts but even so, 300 is an achievement. I want to honor that I have been writing my own posts and curating guest posts for a while now and have achieved this constancy—300 posts. If that makes for a successful blog, then I have done it.
