Storytelling

I am working on writing a story. I realize that I am not confident that I know exactly how to write a story but I am not letting that stop me. I have some key events to weave into something and I am not sure that I know where it is all going but I am moving forward with it anyway. My biggest fear is that the story won't go anywhere, that there will be no climax or resolution. Do these things even exist or is there just resignation, acceptance and adaption. I have no answers but maybe answers are not even a reasonable goal. I am writing this story and as things come to mind I put them in, like I am making a salad. I am a good salad maker so maybe I can focus on that, and making the story won't feel so uncharted. Now that I have mentioned it here I will have to finish it and present it somehow, that's okay, I am interested in finishing things these days.

Your post about writing a story was a lovely and riveting story and I was nodding my head the whole time thinking "that's exactly it. that's what it feels like to write a story." I'm convinced this is a sign that you should write your story because I've a suspicion your story is writing you.

it's collecting in my pores and if I don't write I get zits and since I have always been defined by my alabaster skin I am compelled to keep writing.

ha!
