A word on Episode XI – About the creative process

I am often caught off guard about how my words… impact others.

And it never ceases to humble me.

A response to a reader… who asked if a person can be taught “how to write” and who queried about my creative process (a Spring flashback).

I celebrate her in the form of narratives, her role in an origin story on the forthcoming cookbook and a poem for her and all of the other Momma's in the Universe. Let this serve as a small deposit of gratitude that I have for her lending me her power in the form of this electronic medium, since what we say on the Internet stays forever? I'm gon' talk about my Momma. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/shunpwrites/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/shunpwrites/support
