I wanted to reblog this post by my new “writing buddy” Christine Macdonald. She is currently working on a memoir about her struggles as a drug addict and ex-stripper. Like most us writers, she began with a story to tell and a desire to share it. What were once just small seeds buried in the back of her subconscious have now blossomed into full bouquets of rich, compelling, and truthful tendrils. I’m so glad to have had the pleasure of meeting Christine. I have a feeling her memoir is going to be one of those books we’ll be talking about for years to come.
