I read a lot and I always admire good writers. But for the past year I've started to write what I hope will be a memoir some day. I have a story to tell and I have been trying to put it together. Because I am a perfectionsist, I am my worst critic. I have made a lot of progress but I would like to hear from you out there. What has your journey as an amateur writer been like? what has been helping your writing skill? what or who inspired you?J'ai toujours ete une grande lectrice. Mais voila qu'aujourd'hui l'ecriture s'est imposee a moi a partir d'une experience que j'ai eue. Est-ce que l'art d'ecrire et de bien ecrire peut s'apprendre? Je serais tres reconnaissante d'entendre vos suggestions et d'avoir vos opinions sur la question.
