"Didion began writing The Year of Magical Thinking on October 4, 2004, and finished 88 days later on New Year's Eve. She went on a book tour following the release of this memoir, doing many readings and interviews to promote it. She has said that she found the process very "therapeutic" during her period of mourning."
I just finished reading the above book by Joan Didion. Her husband died very suddenly and she wrote about the first year without him. I googled her name and this came up in the Wikipedia entry.
It just confirms, yet again, the importance of getting on this site and writing, engaging and feeling.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
