A to Z Theme 2016
For my 2016 A to Z theme I used a meme that I ran across on the blog of Bridget Straub who first saw it on the blog of Paula Acton. This meme is a natural for me to use on my memoir blog. It's an A to Z concept and it's about me. No research and nothing complicated. I'm given twenty six questions or topics to discuss that are about me.In April I kept my posts short and uncomplicated. In the midst of it all you might learn a few things about me that you didn't previously know.

Grief (Elements of Memoir)
Grief can be a devastating experience filled with heart-wrenching emotion and even sometimes irrational behavior. There are many stories related to grief. The mourning and emptiness created by loss can last for days or even years. Some deal with grief by withdrawing into a dark sadness of self while others might become tremendously creative and productive in order to channel their feelings.
All of us deal with grief at some point in our lives and can expect more grief in the future. A memoir about the grieving experience can be the story of what happened before and after the grief-inducing event. These stories can assist others in facing their own times of grief or give readers something with which to relate in their own lives.
We each have our own way of dealing with grief and each situation of grieving might be different from the next. In all of times of grief that we experience there are new stories to be told.
Do you have a grieving story to tell others? Have you seen any unique ways that others have faced their times of grieving? What positive things can evolve from grief?
