Please say hello to Richard Stuart Gilbert, someone I’ve never met in person but feel I’ve known a long time. His words have often left me pondering days or weeks later. He’s a blogger, journalist, memoir writer, professor and more. Some years ago he owned a sheep farm. Sound interesting? He is!
Richard seems to be walking a parallel path in Appalachian Ohio to mine here in Brooklyn. When I found his blog Narrative a year or so ago, I reached for my shepherd’s crook and snagged it!
Richard has written about my post about the idea of Ubuntu and memoir on his blog. He also interviewed me. Part One of a two-part series asks me about my memoir’s working title, Rosy Cheeks and about how I structured my writing process over the last five years. While you are on Richard’s blog be sure to click on his favorite memoirs and read a few of his reviews. You’ll understand why I consider myself a learner in Richard’s classroom! And give him a little blogger love — leave a comment!
What other blogs do you love to read? Do you have any to recommend to me or to my readers?
