Memoir

I’m sorry I haven’t posted a blog in a few months. I’ve been busy editing my memoir, “As Ever, Pudd” (Letters of a Love Story That Never Ends) for publication. I’m either going to get an agent/publisher or self publish. That’s my dilemma now. It’s taken me 5 1/2 years to complete and edit. I’m proud of the accomplishment. I’ve actually wrote a book. It’s 59,000 words and 208 pages. My husband died February 13th, 2007 and in Sept, 2007 I joined a writing group and went from there. It has been a wonderful journey, extremely cathartic and the women in my group (9) are warm, caring and just wonderful. I don’t know what I would have done without them. Kudos to you gals, you know who you are. I’ll be back soon on the topic of The Social Aspects of Widowhood.
If there is there is an agent or publisher out there that wants to contact me to read any of my memoir chapters please feel free to blog or e-mail me at anlocar@aol.com
Meanwhile I’ll close with a poem I wrote:

My Soulmate-My Lifelong Love

Every day I fell in love with you all over again
I fell in love with the things that attracted me to you
Important things like your values and your character
Little things like the touch of your hand
And the flash of your smile
I fell in love with everything about you that I discovered
along the way

Your constant loyalty to our life together
Your encouragement of my personal growth
Your knack for finding new ways
To keep our love alive and growing
I fell in love with dreams of our future
With new journeys we found
New experiences we shared
New milestones that wouldn’t mean anything
If we didn’t reach them together

Each day I’ve been more grateful that I found my soulmate
My lifelong love
My heart’s desire
