Moving Beyond the Pain
Here's an essay I wrote after reading Sheila Bender's wonderful book, Writing and Publishing Personal Essays. In fact, I would pretty much recommend reading any of her books for the would-be writer. I read her books before writing my personal essay for graduate school. But the below essay is a very personal one for me and I hope you enjoy it.
In fact, I was just reading it and it gave me an idea for a novel that I may write and publish someday.
