Origami by Roman Diaz and Daniel Naranjo
Dinty W. Moore, editor of Brevity, a Creative Non-Fiction Literary Magazine shared a powerful understanding on the purpose of writing personal narrative:
Montaigne, underneath all of the complex sentences and fancy language, is making a simple assertion. It’s his belief that if he captures a true portrait of himself, he’ll capture something universal, something recognizable to everyone.
Or, as he puts it elsewhere in the same essay: “… Every man carries the entire form of human condition.”
