Dance All Night

Although I told myself I wouldn't, I've worked myself in a writing-all-night, sleeping-all-day schedule again. I've been getting a lot of writing done, but it's been exhausting. Tonight I felt empty, just empty, as well as sleepy and tired. I opened up the computer and told myself I was just going to look at my latest chapter/story, but I ended up working on it all night. I'm glad I did, because I discovered something that took the story into a completely different--better--direction. This new discovery actually ended up being the pivotal thing, the whole meaning of the story, the missing part. This is a piece I've been wanting to write for so long. It feels good to finally have it drafted. I think it's very close to being finished. Good morning and good night!

Some day I hope to be in your sleepy shoes. But will I have anything to say when I finally sit myself down? Teagrapple

About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
