Returning to my July novel...
I found a catalyst. I am writing a fictionalized memoir. I won't call it a memoir, of course, because much of it will be made up, but I will take real events in my life and make them more extreme. "What if I never broke up with my high school boyfriend? In fact, what if I never left my hometown?" Me, in that situation, would be very unhappy. I imagine most of my real friends would have given up on me and skipped town. What if I left to pursue my dreams and reconnect with my friends? What if my naive self were to trust too much and go broke too soon? What if I got stuck halfway across the country? When did I become a cynic? What caused that? But can't love triumph over all in the end after all?
