In writing my character Ben
I realize after spending six years with him
he has become more of me
and I of him.


I have spent the past 3 days rereading my first novel BRIGHTER THAN BRIGHT, reconsidering how many voices to present, and in this close reading I have learned so much: about myself, about Ben, about this story and what it means.

A novel is never finished. And that's okay. Peace...


  1. You are right, Linda, a novel won't end as long as you don't

  2. Agreed, Linda. While never finished, there is a time to let it totter on its feet out into the wider world.

    And a part of you goes with it.


Leave your grace here...
