In other words: I am feeling better! Compared to the feeling of yesterday, the difference in today is truly like night and day. Ah! I can breathe again (even if I do cough a lot)! I can eat again (though I’m being just a little careful, know what I’m sayin’?)! I can write again; and I have!
Because this is October, I am actually going to try an experiment. A writing experiment. I am going to post portion of the story I am working on each Wednesday, beginning with today. It feels like it a Halloween story.
This is an experiment as well as an exercise in control. There are 5 Wednesdays in this month. In fact, Halloween – October 31st – is on a Wednesday this year. My goal is to have the story completely told by that Wednesday.
I am a little concerned about this exercise/experiment: This is going to force me to do more crafting of my work instead of just letting it go where it will. I need to do this a) as practice for longer pieces; and b) to prove to myself I can do it; and c) tell a darned good story! This will also give me fodder for the writing group (we need a name guys). I am concerned because this is going to be a truce challenge for me. This is going to help me dust off old skills. Even if this exercise/experiment flops as a story, I will still have learned something valuable from it all.
