My joke is that I am a process knitter. I don't care WHAT I am knitting I only care that I AM knitting. It seems that is how I have been about these two books. I just do things until I feel like it is done without, I hope, being overworked.
OK, These are the first two pages: They should get larger if you click:
I am skipping the next two pages... they belong in the "nearly" done section and I am not pleased with where they are yet. However, this single page is especially interesting as it is a quote from the book We are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. I have now read it twice, and it was better the second time. The quote in the picture is what I refer to when people ask what the book is about.
In case it is not readable:
"This doesn't mean that this story isn't true, only that I honestly don't know anymore if I really remember it or only remember how to tell it.
Language does this to our memories -- simplifies, solidifies, codifies, mummifies. An oft-told story is like a photograph in a family album, eventually it replaces the moment it was meant to capture."
Hmmm... do you have to be old before this resonates?
