Waste Not…


I just read an article…by my friend…Christy Birmingham…about…walking into a pole on a walk…and…it got me to thinking…for me…as a writer…nothing is wasted…literally no life event…no matter how embarrassing…gets put in file thirteen…it shows up on the page…eventually…albeit…often disguised…

I suppose that’s a good thing…it certainly brings a level of…humanity…to my writing…but…sometimes…I wonder…does sharing my…darkest…goofiest…moments…leave my readers with the impression…of me as…inept…neurotic…bumbling

Bertha…says…not to worry…my writing…doesn’t make people think that way about me…no…she…says…they…already…knew those things…and…they loved me anyway…

She’s quite the comedian…geez…

  1. Oh dear! Now more people know I walked into a pole hehe. I love that I have been linked to two posts now here :) I’m proud to be your friend Jane. Keep up the great work! (and no pole-ouchies for you)

    • What can I say…Christy…your article just made me think how transparent we become when we write…

      Honored to have you as part of my blog!
