Writing Project


My cousin is one of the three people who is putting this together (an actual first cousin -- we share silly memories from childhood, not a discovered-via-genealogy-more-distant-cousin). I've sent in my submission. It's sort of an interesting process, if you have a relevant story to tell. Over and above writing the story down (which I've done and done verbally so many times that part of the trick is to come up with a fresh angle), telling it in an appealing way while simultaneously stripping out all the identifying information (names, places, etc.) is a weird experience.
