A bit of an update:
The King’s Speech was released earlier this year and opened up an opportunity for those of us who stutter to have a real conversation with the public, one we, perhaps, haven’t had before. On the heels of the movie and before the Oscar’s took place, I wrote a piece about the myths I thought were perpetuated through the film and where I thought we were actually moving the discussion backwards. I was lucky enough to have my article picked up by The Time’s Union. If you’re interested in reading it, it’s entitled The king and us, myth and all and is accessible on the TU Web site.
Also worth noting, if you’re local to Troy, NY,I’ll be doing a reading of that piece for Troy Night Out (TNO Facebook page), reading aloud and then answering questions about my process writing it and, I believe, what goes into writing memoir as a whole. That’s taking place Friday, March 25 at 7pm at the Art’s Center of the Capital Region. Do stop by, if you can. A few of my classmates will be reading pieces they’ve written and they’re going to be fantastic.
Other than that, with busines and life settling down, expect posts more frequently over here, though perhaps not as polished as the ones previously posted. We’ll see.
Stay tuned. 😉
