Even if we’re not all writers by trade, Sixers understand the power of words. This week’s memoirs explored many aspects of writing, from the art of telling (“So many wrongs left to write.”) to the importance of editing (“Never go with your first draft.”). Some of our memoirists were particularly revealing (“Poetry: best way into my pants.”). Whether you’re discovering your inner bard or slogging away at that novel for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), writing is hard work…but the rewards are endless. We salute the writer in everyone.
