Here’s the thing. I can’t seem to stop compartmentalizing my life. I am calling this WIP fiction because it is based on my life and if my memory serves me correctly, it doesn’t serve me correctly. Everything I am writing is based on my truth to the best of my ability and perception. Perception is a tricky thing as I’m sure you all know.
I have four separate documents going, they are all the different phases of my life and then there’s Shay.
My life really did go in phases as I look back. Each and every one of them was a life time. I have been to the dark side, the very dark side and I found my way out. And the funny thing about that is, I didn’t even know it was bad until I started crawling out of the muck. I lose my breath sometimes when I think about it. For the grace of…
Anyway, I am at the B&N right now posting this. My intention was to pick up Bird by Bird and here I sit with four books in front of me. Now, I have four at home to read, one of which I am a beta for and it is top priority. I will not
touch read any other book until TDYDK is finished. I promise.
I am usually pretty good about writing down the books I have found that I want and purchasing only one from the bookstore. I then go home and buy them from Amazon or B&N because I can read the purchased book while I am waiting for the others to ship. This time I can’t. I have to have these books. I own the Stephen King: On Writing Horror, but now I want On Writing.Why? Because I started to read the first few pages and realized how similar our lives were in some areas. And he’s one of my favorites. The other one is also by Stephen King, Bag of Bones. I keep hearing about this book and how good it is. There it was sitting on the shelf waiting for me to pick it up and take it home. How could I resist?
I’m not buying the other one, so it’s not even worth mentioning.
I have been able to write about 3,000 words so far this week. It wears on me to recollect a lot of my past so I have been fairly easy on myself this week. Even though I can’t decide exactly how I am going to present this piece of mine I am writing.
That’s it for now. I’ll post more later. Maybe.
Love you guys.
