Nicole, just wanted to let you know that your trauma, grief and loss video is very powerful. Your definitions, frameworks and techniques give me a laminated roadmap on how to write more about my grief. You are offering such invaluable lifelines to so many of us. I can’t thank you enough.
I listened to your video on writing about trauma, grief and loss last evening and I want to say what a gift! I appreciated not only the content, but also the clarity with which you laid it out. You make writing memoir sound so doable in short, boundaried pieces. Thank you.
I wanted to write to say thank you for your amazing webinar on writing about trauma, grief and loss. The tips and examples you shared really resonated with me, and I will look at the resources you noted now too. THANK YOU — for your generosity, gifts and wisdom.
