There are so many reasons why we write: to tell our true life stories, to create fiction, to enlighten, to educate, to entertain. But to me one of the main reasons I write is to heal from things I struggle to mentally or emotionally comprehend, or to embrace my body’s complex journey with dis-ease.
As a writer and cancer survivor I believe writing helps us understand our life experiences. When we translate life’s events from the unspoken into written language we alter our perceptions and fundamentally make the experience graspable. As an author and instructor I strive to engage and inspire others to do exactly that, translate the unspoken into the written word.
