Me: How is the writing going? Hope I wasn’t forceful in my remarks.
Him: I dug your remarks. Actually the most recent writing work I have done is for my book. I have a new element that Kim says makes my main character seem a little crazy. So, I know I’m going in the right direction.
Me: We’re all a little bit crazy. That’s what makes us who we are. Without our own crazy we would be like everyone else. One last thing about writing: it provides a narrative/a platform for who we are or who we were at a certain point in time. If we are fortunate enough to share our story with others, it may become, in some small way, a part of their narrative as well.
