“Don’t bore me with you stories. I don’t want to hear how you went skydiving or ran with the bulls. Because if you’re here telling me the story then I know that everything turned out OK.”Another.
It’s the happening that you don’t see. The happening is life, it’s all the things you do until you realize that it’s happened. A dissolving marriage, a bad relationship with your kids. You don’t realize that things are as bad as they are until they can’t get any worse, until they are broken beyond repair. Until they’ve happened, and by then it’s too late.
I think that my file is a good size. It's got a lot of stuff in there I hope to develop further. But I know that there are other writers with notebook after notebook full of ideas, probably developed to greater detail than my little file.
So, if there are any other writers out there reading this, how big is your file and what's inside?
