The last fragile whispers

I started my morning reading this lovely piece and commented:

Oh my, this is absolutely delightful and tender. A life cycle covered in a heart-tugging, well written short prose. I totally love this Oneta

The unspoken truth

Have you read ’13 Reasons why?’ I haven’t. Consequent to reading Jamila’s post, I’m inspired to watch and read the book.

It’s important to treat others right. Treat them with kindness you would never know but it could save a life. Also, it’s important to be aware of our actions, aware of the words we are saying. It’s impossible to know what’s going on in someone’s life and how we might be adding to his/her pain.

Felicity has an Anxiety Attack

Roger is asleep and Felicity is alone with her thoughts.

This is dangerous for a girl like Felicity.

Questions of identity start bringing her down.

One question leads to another until suddenly nothing
is real.

She lit a cigarette, took a long drag, and tossed her hair

She’s never killed anyone.  (That guy at Club Uranus was merely stunned.)

Felicity took drag on her cigarette and examined the sleeping Roger:
the corpse like way his mouth falls open when he sleeps.

Her stomach flips and the cigarette makes her sick.

She stubs it out and creeps into bed.

She curls up next to Roger and brings her thumb to her mouth.

These questions of identity are bringing her down;

Is she a good American.

Is she cruel enough?

Perhaps we reveal ourselves in our character choice, our writing style or genre, or even in the quality of our work.

Is there a depth of compassion in the words that we write?

Or do we demonstrate prowess in a particular topic or skill?

I thought I would take a more generic approach, and look at what we learn about ourselves when we write a book that is unconnected to genre, style or writing capability.

We have stamina

It takes a long time.

We write as often as we can, chipping away a word at a time at a goal that we might not see realised for years.

We have determination

We use our determination to sustain us through the journey.

We pick ourselves up from distractions by our unwavering belief that the story…
