This is a continuation of March's History Month. As history in the making I interviewed Kimmie last month and wanted to share her interview. For the rest of this month I'll be sharing the interviews every other day that I did last month. 😊 That will take us through the rest of this month. I got to interview one of my fabulously hilarious and loyal coworkers, Kimmie C. We met back in college and immediately hit it off. She's talented, knows how to research any subject you need help with, and if she's fighting in your corner you are definitely likely to win. Adorably, her son sat in on the interview as soon as he heard the word interview. Note: For this interview only, we'll stay on first names and last initials since our last initials look so similar. I don't want readers getting lost. Kaylyn Gabbert: Since we went and met at Full Sail University through the Creative Writing for Entertainment program, what drew you to that?

Hello all. I know it's the end of Women's History Month, but as women are also currently making history I decided to do a collection called "Women's Empowerment Month". I interviewed women I work with, am colleagues with, and have admired for a long time. There were two things that really inspired this: International Women's Day and I found a very inspirational and informative article in Writer's Digest. I got to practice three of four of the interview techniques I was taught. I worked with everyone's schedules, and I learned international time zones as well. I first hit up my writing crew for women to interview, and so many people were willing to help. I also hit up a few people in my family members and close, longtime friends. Not all of my longtime friends and family that I wanted to interview were available, but I'm glad I got to interview who I could. I didn't want to interview only one aspect of their lives, that was my ultimate goal.
A few days ago, July 3rd, I was reading the latest issue of Reader's Digest. The first article that caught my attention was 'Why I've Decided Not to Write a Memoir'. It was about a woman who being given a very detailed and loving letter from her grandmother about why her grandmother couldn't write a memoir even though she had so many stories collected. This article made me reread the first Treasured Memories I wrote almost a year ago. A lot has changed since that draft for some, and I want to add more people as well. Some bonds have grown stronger, and others have made their mark in my lately. Books named in the memories will be linked in the bottom. I will be using Goodreads links because Goodreads is also important to a few memories.
