This thesis project is a work in self-analysis, both as writer and woman. The introduction discusses the analogy of walking as a process to the scholarly work of understanding creative writing. The concept of “ars poetica” is referenced as the author highlights learning and practicing writer restraint as well as trust in the reader. The concluding section of the project encompasses a collection of original, creative, short form prose that explores divorce, death, coming of age-menopause, and old age.
