Writing, A-Way to Un-Forgetting
The writing in Chap. 7 comprises moments of “unforgetting” to share the ways in which words might become a-way to make sense of ourselves in the world. The narratives I share here are deliberately shocking and raw, fluid and material, playful and poetic to show how writing critical autoethnography might be a-way to return to love in writing through the body. The Cixousian concept of the “dead woman” writing vulnerably, painfully and passionately in order to live once more is a central theme I explore.
