New Memoir by Judith Mallard - Non-fiction

Missing Pictures – Missing Pieces

Missing Pictures. Can you help me? 

I am writing a MEMOIR of growing up in Newfoundland as a ward of children services and I am looking for assistance in compiling pictures for a photo section within my book. I’ve started this “missing pictures” campaign, with the hope that folks who may have grown up around me or went to school with me, may have pictures that they wouldn’t mind sharing.

And right at this moment, I am beyond ecstatic!

You cannot help but be amazed and humbled when you see the universe magically working behind the scenes to make your dreams come true.

There I was today – making some final tweaks on my missing pictures campaign – when I noticed a message in my Facebook messenger. When I opened it, much to my joyful surprise – there sat ten pictures of me as a teenager.

I instantly started crying. But I assure you they were pure tears of joy AND gratitude.

This is what your actions do for me and I am so blessed because of them.

One of the pictures that you see here, was actually an image that I found one day posted on Facebook by a childhood friend. This gave me hope that there could be more.

I realize many years have passed since my growing up in St. John’s, Newfoundland, people have moved and photo albums have been carefully packed away in dusty forgotten attics or hidden in cobwebbed corners. Which is why I’m asking any and all, to share this post with as many people as you can.

Back then, we didn’t have the amazing social media platform that we do today that helps keep us all connected.

I am also keeping in mind, that perhaps not every household in Newfoundland is secretly stashing an actual picture of me (smile) – but if you do find me somewhere hidden among your own buried treasures, please do share.

My gratitude goes beyond words.

I will be self-publishing “The Match Still Burns” in Winter 2019 and I will be posting updates on both my social media platform and on my website, so please do feel free to either pop back for a visit or subscribe to our mailing list.

Do you know me?

From 1961 to 1967 I lived on Howe Place close to St. Joseph’s School in St. John’s as Judy Mallard. 

From August 8, 1967 to December 30, 1968 I lived at 2 Norma’s Avenue in Mount Pearl – with James and Mary Francis Dinn.

From December 30, 1968 to 1983 I lived on Manning’s Hill Torbay – both as Judy Nolan and as Judy Mallard. 

I welcome any and all images that you may have to help me recapture these memories of my life growing up in Newfoundland. Any information about your picture submissions with respect to content and timeline would also be greatly appreciated.

Write Into Light 2018 – with Martha Beck

Category:Creative Writing,Memoirs,Non Fiction,Self Publishing,Writing Events Tags : 

I am beyond enthusiastic to be embarking on yet another exciting path towards my writing career by registering with Martha Beck’s Write Into Light 2018 online course.

creative writing, memoirs, non-fiction

I will definitely be adding additional posts and links to more information as I progress through the writing course. As much as I am excited about doing this program – I’m equally excited to be able to experience it first hand so that I can then share it with others as I discover everything that it has to offer. I would be lost without all the wonderful writers, thinkers and philosophers who share their wisdom and knowledge every single day. It would be remiss of me not to pass that along.

 

“WRITE INTO LIGHT is the most intimate project I’ve ever created, and the most ambitious. You will learn the art of mining your own experience for wisdom that can genuinely help other people. It’s going to transform you. It’s going to create culture and community. It’s going to change the world. I’m not even kidding.” Martha Beck
