Writing oneself: the possibilities of being anything you want.
“I didn't find my story; it found me, as autobiography always does: finds you out in your deepest most private places.”
—Kelly Cherry, The Exiled Heart: A Meditative Autobiography
“I'm working on my own life story. I don't mean I'm putting it together; no, I'm taking it apart. If you'd wanted the narrative line you should have asked earlier, when I still knew everything and was more than willing to tell. That was before I discovered the virtues of scissors, the virtues of matches.”
—Margaret Atwood, The Tent
