Trusting my story to my co-writer.

and trusting myself to put it out there. I first began writing my story because of a need to better understand myself, a bit like I have a habit of doing when working on a painting, I will get up from the easel and back away some ten feet and just relax and look at what I have done and then decide on one thing I really want to change in order to improve upon the painting, I do this throughout and it has served me well. I mention the… Read more Trusting my story to my co-writer.

Fresh winds, new hope.

Still working on getting the French version done as well as that coffee table book of my paintings that pretty much follows my evolution since transitioning, and it will be bilingual.There is another project that may very well see the light of day to which I will be attached but I will wait until it actually takes off and that… Read more Fresh winds, new hope.

Motivations.

I wrote my memoirs partly because I saw it as a way to show women like myself as being human, with all this entails. My story is imbued with tragedy and humour, with self-loathing and acceptance, I wanted to share how my mind was able to survive thanks to what I would describe as my creativity which allowed me to often transport myself elsewhere when things got too difficult.I wanted to tell a story of hope and of coming into one’s own with a good measure of happiness and I… Read more Motivations.

Why I wrote my story.

My story and why I decided to finally write it. I can say right off that this is not the story of a heroine, because I am decidedly not such a person. There have been many memoirs written by women like myself, women of trans origin. I originally started putting words to my Pages app a few years ago, mostly because I needed to read my own words and work through my feelings and try and get a better understand of who I am. When I began to transition, I… Read more Why I wrote my story.

Analyzing my story, a little.

You all know that when I get started on something, it can get absolutely topsy-turvy. I am breaking down certain elements of my story, attempting to isolate certain parts of it that are either underlying stories be they social, economical or generational and how they juxtapose with trauma and gender identity.The main element is of course my gender identity and how this has been with me from early childhood but there are many other elements worth exploring in the memoirs. One of these is my family’s social, economical, linguistic and… Read more Analyzing my story, a little.

Silver screen potential

A few weeks ago, I offered up my story to read to a cinematographer friend, she was interested in seeing if it corresponded to something she was looking to work on. She had already wanted to work on a story of a trans woman so when I was posting on my Facebook profile that I had completed my memoirs and was about to publish, we connected and I sent her the story. After a couple of weeks, we chatted and she was in love with my story, felt it had… Read more Silver screen potential
