SOL March 7: Fragment

Found in my journal from 2010, possibly a note for a story (which I never wrote)?


"History—the effort to connect the discrete moments of life into a narrative whole

"A person who tries to escape that narrative, but focusing on the moment-by-moment, always starting over, but the power of narrative overcomes his[her] resistance by creating alternative narratives that he[she] recognizes as false"


What kind of story could this be? an accumulation of "slices of life"?



I’m participating in the 14th annual Slice of Life Challenge over at Two Writing Teachers. This is day 7 of the 31-day challenge.  It’s not too late to make space for daily writing in a community that is encouraging, enthusiastic, and eager to read what you have to slice about.  Join in!
