Just got a ‘note’ from my editor (like I have one….well not yet anyway)…”This whole damn thing needs a rewrite; all 65yrs.”
Over the weekend I engaged in a writing ‘assignment’. I made a list of 100 moments that occurred in my life. Just a sentence or 2 for each. As I wrote I noticed, sometimes painfully, the ‘memories’ were colored with very similar emotions. Oh, for sure there are the laugh-out-loud moments but the more ‘serious’ memories had shades and tones drawn from a heavier, darker pallet. WHY? And is there any goddamn thing I can do about that?
I intend to find out.
Pour Your Light…I’ll pour mine
