Just a short post for now, because this has been the most ridiculously busy week, and I have to concentrate on the actual writing thing.
I just had to mention this...
One of the synonyms listed for "sister" on Thesaurus.com...is "uterine kin".
Note to self: Add "uterine kin" to the list of words I will insert randomly in conversations (also on list: defenestration, sartorially).
If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
