Graduation Speech: “I never dreamed I’d meet [a writer], much less become one.”

    I forwarded you speech to my daughter Matteson who is still trying to find her way to creative writing. Congratulations on completing your Masters Degree!

  2. Hey Ashley,
    Just reread the speech that I was so moved by at graduation. It is such a good summation of what I’ve been through. I especially love the sentence: “It was trying to be something else that was the problem.” It is strange how something so nebulous – “writing” – is so grounding to those of us who are truly writers (i.e. masochists with pens!). All kidding aside, this one’s going up on the writing wall.
    Cheers,
    Tamra
