Leda Schubert: Truth, Fiction, My Journals, Mal Peet, and instructions in my will
Oops. It’s been almost six months since my last blog post. I wondered if I was cut out for this. Now we know. But here’s a post I am sharing with the VCFA blog, Write At Your Own Risk.
For over 20 years, I kept a journal. I started in my early teens and stopped at around 40. These assorted notebooks fill a large wooden box, and my will specifies that the box and contents, if still around, are to be burned upon my death, and I AM NOT KIDDING.
These journals are often tales of woe. But they are also filled with the story of my life, and Ive forgotten almost all of it.
