Women Writing

For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.
— Virginia Woolf

Where do you find your inspiration?  As far as blogging goes, I read a number of people, particularly women, who write beautifully, humorously, truthfully, about their lives and the people in them, and I long to be among them.  I don’t think I always succeed, but here and there perhaps you can catch glimpses of what I aspire to do.

Today, one of my favorites wrote about her mother who passed away unexpectedly several years ago.  Reading her post, as with most of the things she shares about her family, brought tears to my eyes.  Partly because I was sad for her, but also because her writing about grief is at once heartbreaking and hopeful, and that’s a combination that really speaks to me.

So for today’s post, I thought I’d link to a couple of my favorite posts by a few of my favorite women bloggers.  I hope they move you as much as they moved me.

Ladies, if you object to being linked here (or just to these particular entries being linked), please let me know, and I will be happy to remove them.
