Notes on a Life

"I was reading a book a few weeks ago - I like to read first thing in the morning these days, with my coffee. So I was reading the book and I went to take a sip of coffee and I spilled on the book.  I got all upset: 'Now look!  I ruined the book! […]

True Stories Told Well: Tricia Lott Williford

Recently, FaithHappenings featured my writing in their Author Spotlight. Here's my interview with a splash of personality. What do you love to write and what inspired you to start? I love true stories told well, so my favorite genre is creative nonfiction. I tend to lean into real-life moments and do two things with them: dissect big emotions, giant […]

The Keeping Quality

There is something about the pace of letter writing that's a welcome antidote to the speed of modern life.  By their very nature, letters allow for more consideration of the words and thoughts that someone is offering you, in part because they prevent interruption.  Perhaps best of all is their *keeping* quality.

Air and Sunshine into My Brain

Already I've seen that when you're pulled away from your normal routine, it's as though air and sunlight come into your brain and do a little housecleaning.  A lifting up of what's been practically rusted into place to reveal something else, a thing that makes you understand the origin of the phrase 'new and exciting', […]

Serving Suggestion

"I have a problem with ageism, overt and especially covert. My feeling about a person's age is that it's a serving suggestion. It's up to you what you do with it: take it as offered, modify it, or ignore it all together." ~ Cece in Tapestry of Fortunes, by Elizabeth Berg

Lust and Longing

"You would think I'd get enough of books.  They are stacked all over my house.  More arrive every week, one way or another.  But, like any true book lover, I never do get enough.  I regard the shelves in any bookstore with the same mix of lust and longing I experience when I stare into […]

For Just Half An Hour

... Now I didn't care about anything except the fact that he had died and I had not been ready. I had not been done with him. I wanted him to come back for just half an hour, so I could say what I had saved up for another time. For later. - Elizabeth Berg, […]
