Practical insights for writers from Jessica P Morrell


Written By: Jessica Morrell - Mar• 19•15

My apologies for my absence from this site. I have been occupied, preoccupied with my elderly parent’s tenuous situation (they live in a remote area of northern Wisconsin) and my mother’s health. I traveled there to help with my mother’s end of life care. She died on March 7 of congestive heart failure and the funeral and wake were last week. This was followed by a week of mop-up activities, paperwork, and details that included picking out a headstone. I am forever changed. Now I’m finally back in Portland and will return to work tomorrow.

The past few months have given me much to write about so I will be turning sorrow into words.

Keep writing, keep dreaming, have heart
