I welcome your stories about your quirky neighbors/family/friends

March 6, 2010

I’m an ordinary quirky woman with, if not an extraordinary life, at least a fully lived one. I am drawn to other quirky characters and write about them in my current memoir, Oldham Street.I welcome your stories about your quirky neighbors/ family/friends, or perhaps, more importantly, what you have learned as you have progressed along in life: sadness, gladness and all the other emotions or situations and what you have done successfully with them.

Never having focused on money earning (but still needing to earn), I followed my heart into work, travel, mothering, and now grandmothering, but still writing.

January 3, 2010, Feeling Stuck.

January 4, 2010

My second memoir is here in galley form for further editing, and having found any number of errors and incomplete thoughts, I grew melancholy! Feeling stuck. So what are my tools to move me on?  First, companionship. Today my bodhisattva friend Teresa LeYung Ryan came to help me with the blog. I am so fearful of new learnings on the computer that just putting this blog in order has already helped me feel more confident. But what about the book? In a dialogue with Teresa, I now see that my struggle revolves around honoring my own experience and still honoring another’s truth.

About Lynn Scott’s Books

I am the author of the memoir A Joyful Encounter: My Mother, My Alzheimer Clients, and Me. My book is not about the disease, but about the spirit that exists in us all as long as we live. I led my clients in singing the old familiar songs (“Take Me Out to The Ballgame,” “As Time Goes By,” “I Love You Truly”), and I reveled in the love I received and gave.

 

Currently I am completing a memoir with a working title of Oldham Street, about landing in a small sunny neighborhood of San Francisco in 1987 on thin emotional ice. I was helped to heal from deep grief by a unique set of unlikely healers.

I’m an ordinary quirky woman with, if not an extraordinary life, at least a fully lived one. I am drawn to other quirky characters and write about them in my current memoir: Oldham Street.

Never having focused on money earning (but still needing to earn), I followed my heart into work, travel, mothering, and now grandmothering, but still writing. I offer help (at reasonable rates) to writers seeking line or word editing, or needing a neutral overview of a work in progress.  I welcome serious conversations about writing, or Life. 

I welcome your  stories about your quirky neighbors or family members.
