Many thanks to Dr. Victoria Morse for being our featured speaker at our March Writers Forum meeting. I left the meeting with scads of great writing starts and ideas for many more pieces to add to my story.
From writing our first memories to composing six word autobiographies, we spent the morning embracing our stories and getting acquainted with ourselves. With each person who shared out, I was humbled to be in the presence of such skilled writers, writers who craft words that one moment make a lump bob in my throat and the next moment dislodge that lump by causing me to chuckle. It was great seeing so many new faces in addition to the familiar faces I’ve come to know and love. Here are some snapshots from the day.
Victoria Morse is currently teaching a class, Write Your Own Biography. It began on Monday, March 5 and runs through April 2 at 6:00 p.m. in Redding Library. Sign-ups are taken through Redding Recreation at 225-4095. The cost is $31.
For now, I leave you with Victoria’s closing words.
You are worthy. You have been given the grace to touch other people’s lives. Your very breath has made a difference in our world’s make-up. Write as though you have a message to share with posterity; because you do! Whether to many or a certain one, in their eyes you are a light. Know this. You and your story are of inestimable value. Continue always to write as the Spirit moves you.
Looking forward to seeing you at our April meeting!

We HATED missing this one especially. This last week was one out of a nightmare, though, and we’ve come to know more intimately the dynamic duo of pain and sickness. It sounds like it was a wonderful program, and I also love the pics.
Hi, Beth, I was wondering where you were. Get well soon and get ready for a great program on blogging at our April meeting. Take care and we’ll see you soon!
Thanks for the avid participation. It was my pleasure to be among fifty
compatriots who agree that writing is a key ingredient to “Know thyself.” The next
Write Your Own Biography is 5 weeks, July 30-August 27, on Mondays at 6:00,
Redding Recreation at the Library. Warmly, Victoria
