Day 165 ‘ Not ready to tell this story.’
A wonderful man once told me, write what you know. He was talking about music, but it translates to most anything creative I believe. Imagination is all very well, but truth has an authenticity to it that makes it relatable. I started down the short story path and decided for my comfort to write from the perspective of a character, mostly because I didn’t want to be in it. It’s quite tricky to manufacturer a fictional world around an event that happened. I’ve realised I’m not quite ready to tell this story, and when I am, it has to be what I experienced. Apologies to anyone that was reading, I will come back to it, but for now, I’m just going to put it in the freezer and will revisit at a later time. Thanks for the indulgence and opportunity to experiment. Every day brings a little lesson does it not 🙂
Thanks for listening.
