Memoirs in progress.
I thought I would give you a few ideas of what I am writing about. I am definitely in the rough draft stage and will be for quite a while. I have a lot to write about.
Right now I am writing in essay form. That may change but it seems to work best as my life has been starts and stops, sectional. Like I could never decide on just one.
My first memoir (the one I am now working on) is about my life up till age forty-two. University. Twenty jobs to homelessness. Three summers in Europe, two round-the-worlds, other trips. ADHD and Bipolar 1. Twelve homes. Bankruptcy #1. My own business. Being a chameleon. Eating disorders.
My second memoir is about four years of homelessness, second bankruptcy, searching for mental health help in six counties, finding it in Santa Maria, CA. Complete breakdown. Death of a boyfriend. Move to the Bay Area and acknowledging love. Marriage and recuperation. Hope. Finding me again. Move to Mexico at sixty and becoming balanced.
The working title is “Becoming Content With a Scattered Mind; my journey through chaos to contentment with Bipolar 1 and ADHD.” It is long, I know. And may change. But that is it in a nutshell.
