Do I talk about research, and the difference it can make to your story? How going to a place can allow you to see and feel aspects that you wouldn’t have understood otherwise?
Or, do I talk about the author/editor thing, and how it seems to flow out of different parts of the brain? And how I’m utterly stuck in a blockaded no-words-for-you zone with my current WIP.
Or, maybe, the great trans kids I’m working on a memoir project with? And how I need a keynote speaker for the anthology launch.
How about the constant learning I’m doing on how my depression combines with panic to create a super-tar-demon? And the ‘just waiting for the other shoe to drop any second’ aspect? What’s the difference between denying it and living around it?
I’m learning to bake. And I made flowers out of stuff you’re supposed to be able to eat, though real flowers dipped in paint thinner would have tasted better.
Q: How is your stuff going?
