Week Twenty-two: Kathy Benson

This week’s prompt was suggested by Friday’s Voice Amanda Kasper: Why do you write? I write to process and try to make sense of my life. I write to share about my experience with secondary infertility and loss. I write to reach out to and connect with others who are learning to cope and find joy … Continue reading

Week Twenty-two: Peter Combs

This week’s prompt was suggested by Friday’s Voice Amanda Kasper: Why do you write? When I was six years old, my family watched a biopic on the life of L. Frank Baum, the author of the Oz books. While I would later learn that the majority of the film took some major liberties and strayed from … Continue reading

Writing (Photo credit: jjpacres) This week’s prompt was suggested by Friday’s Voice Amanda Kasper: Why do you write? When Amanda came up with this idea I loved it.

Week Twenty-one: Kathy Benson

What are you most thankful for?

Week Twenty-one: Peter Combs

What are you most thankful for? Besides for the obvious reasons, this prompt is very timely in my personal life as over the last couple of days I’ve begun to see just how much I have to be thankful for. Such reflection feels like a luxury, as I’ve not had the time to think about … Continue reading

Week Twenty-one: Brian B. Baker

 What are you most thankful for? When I wake up in the morning and see my wife getting ready for work I think about how far we’ve come. When we started dating she was higher up in the chain at the Blockbuster Video we both worked at, she worked there first and it’s also where … Continue reading

Week Twenty: Amanda Kasper

If you were going to write a book, what would it be about? Ironically (or maybe rather, it’s a sign from the universe), this prompt perfectly follows the last one. If you read about the “one thing I want to do before I die”, you’ll know it’s Publish a Book. But it’s not just any … Continue reading

  If you were going to write a book, what would it be about? I am writing a book. It is a memoir about my journey through secondary infertility and loss. How’s that for honesty? I used to think I was *supposed* to keep information like that secret. But after months of working on my … Continue reading

If you were going to write a book, what would it be about? When it comes to books that I want to publish the list is long, very long. I’ve written two books in the last couple years. The first is sitting because of the market, the other I recently finished and I’m going through … Continue reading
