Flannery O'Connor

"Anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days."

American Novelist
1925 - 1964

Do you remember your childhood?  Some people block out memories of their childhood?  Others have a difficult time forgetting even the most painful memories.  As artists and writers we can mine our past experiences for inspiration for our art.  What events out of your childhood can you use in your stories or your art?  Remember art should transform the actual events into more than just the mere facts like spinning straw into gold.

Here are links to three story poems where I transformed childhood stories and events into more than family history — where I discovered a truth greater than facts.
