Ramblings about Writing: Goodbye Dear Joan

Joan Didion at home in Hollywood in 1970.

It was announced today that Joan Didion has passed. I found her through her autobiographical books; Year of Magical Thinking and Blue Nights. She was a brilliant writer, carrying a natural instinct that few can achieve. While I considered her narcissistic at time, she did teach me how to write about personal feelings and suffering … without feeling like a whinner. Goodbye dear friend. I hope you find your dear husband and daughter on the other side. Mike
