I'm a big fan of poetry, but sometimes when the mood is right and the pressure high enough I'll bang out a short story. One of my favorite things to read, though, is memoirs. There's nothing quite like a good memoir! It takes a lot of skill to be vulnerable and still tell a complete story. It's very reflective. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to do that, but for now, I'll just enjoy my Mary Karr quietly.
