Oh my, that does sound crazy! I’ve never done a collab story before, though I would like to at some point. How do you like collabs?
I completely agree. Life is rough, but it gets less rough as you learn. Something my mom always says, which I quote her on all the time is, “If it doesn’t kill you then it’s a story.” Which I think is just great way of thinking about things, because you can look at that stress, or that rocky relationship, and find the humor/adventure/suspense in it, and then turn it into something fun or interesting. But again, if it does kill you, well there’s heaven, so no loss there.
And don’t worry about it, it was great! I like your deep poetic-ness.
