"Feel like writing but I've nothing to say. Feel like writing but the words are away."
Autobiographies.They say that everyone has a book inside of them...because everyone's life is a story. I've often wondered if I would have the courage to have my years published. Those pages could reveal the good, the bag and the ugly. Would 'my' story be unique, captivating...marketable? I've had some issues with my parents- can't write about those. As a child I used to say, "My father would kill me.". I've had some physical and emotional struggles, but wouldn't it be terribly embarrassing to write about many of those? After all, do descriptions of wounds turn pages? Ah, yes. I suppose they do.
There is always romance; nope... check that off as a "no go." My early education in Parochial Schools and what we did while skipping mass? Check and check... God forgive me. Then how 'bout prose on my high school and college escapades, my first long distance solo trip up the coast or the thoughts I had while listening to "The Beatles?" Titillating? Hmm..not so much.
Designing a jacket cover would be enjoyable, as would listing the people I'd like to thank. The real high would be in choosing who to write the cover page, the tribute to the author. I'd like to ask F. Scott Fitzgerald, but he's long gone and way out of my league I fear. Oh there were incredible times and memorable times. Drama and trauma and beauty- highs and lows, anguish and marvel, but a novel's worth? A true "can't put it down" hardback?"
Wish I could start with, "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times..."
"Feel like writing, I know I should try.
Feel like writing, all I have is a sigh."
