This week, Alida and Kathryn continue our conversation with Carlee Tressel Alson about taking emotional risks in writing. It's about more than how you feel while writing. There is a relationship formed between the author and the reader when a text is shared. What does it mean to tell the truth in writing fiction, as well as creative nonfiction? What do we do when others can't separate the author from the work? How can we be responsible to both the truth and the people we're putting on the page - even if the character is only a fictional version of someone we know? When writing becomes emotionally difficult, what can we do to take care of ourselves and get the story on the page?

Part 2 of 2.
