My Story – a Haiku

This morning at the Oregon Christian Writers conference, Sarah Thebarge (author of The Invisible Girls) challenged her memoir writing class to tell our stories as a poem. As a greater challenge she suggested a Haiku. Here’s what I wrote.

Innocence stolen
Nothing heals, despair sets in
Dream shows path of grace

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • I have about 1/3 of it typed up. And at the OCW conference this weekend I figured out my story arc and how I’m going to structure it. Plus I learned some ways to make the 1/3 I’ve already written more concrete. My goal is to have a draft polished in time to enter into next year’s OCW Cascade Writing Contest in the unpublished memoir category and hopefully win and find a publisher.
