That’s what I hoped this week in San Francisco would be for me: the resurrection of my writing soul … and that’s exactly what it’s turning out to be! I’m so excited that I’ve been given this opportunity, that I’ve been allowed to come here and be a part of this group of writers, that I get to wear my “Writer” badge all week and no one will question it, no one will ask to see proof. I feel lighter, happier, more powerful already!
Adding to my feeling of power as a writer is the fact that the essay I submitted for the second Empowering Women anthology was accepted! The theme for the new anthology is “EmBODYment in Women’s Literacy.” So I took a leap from the post I wrote about Tania a few months ago and wrote a piece called “My Body Politic: Paying Attention to the Woman Behind the Curtain.”
That warm, cello hum you hear? That’s me.
