Judy's Jermyn: blog and memoir teasers
The Almost Full Story
When I was little, Mom told me “Stop making things up.”
I didn’t listen.
I cannot remember a time when there wasn’t a story
rambling around in my head.
I’d scribble an idea into a notebook, a diary, or onto loose-leaf paper.
For a long time, the ideas remained scribbles.
As the years passed, some of the ideas were crafted into short stories.
Some of the short stories were then adapted for one-act plays.
Now, the scribbles are memory triggers for my new journey: a memoir.
The works on these pages and in my memoir, Calico Lane,
are connected to or are inspired by,
the people who forever call this little town, home.
I am thankful and fortunate to have had beginnings filled with love
from parents and extended family, and a safe neighborhood
in which to experience the wonders of childhood.
Judy’s Jermyn will delight all who have
found their beginnings in Jermyn or a town similar.
With each passing day, Judy’s Jermyn gains more followers,
and with that, even more success.
