Pieces of Me

by Michelle Duvall

It really isn’t enough to simply write the words. Throwing the words onto the page with reckless abandon can be detrimental to the career and reputation of a serious wordsmith. It requires a careful, almost snobbish prejudice before settling on the perfect word. Creation of a world is not a task that can be accomplished by just anyone you know, and no one can tell this story as I can because I, and I alone, hold the secret ingredient. And what is it that makes mine so much different? It is the only one that contains pieces of me.


Michelle Duvall, among other things, is a single mom, a teacher, and a writer. She is the author of Taking Detours.
