Welcome to your Friday Morning FYI – my chance to share observations/wisdom/rants in short, easily consumed form.
I’ve recently had several people ask about the stuff I toss up here, specifically wondering if the content that feels ‘personal’ is real (as in has happened or is happening in my life). The answer is Yes/No. Some things are real and some are invented. Some bits are inflations based on real events or people, but pushed beyond reality for artistic purpose. This brings up an interesting question, though – one I feel warrants a special post:
How much should we be willing to explain?
Writers (and any artists), covet a small group of friends and trusted colleagues to whom you’ll answer all questions, and leave everyone else twisting. When you explain to everyone how the rabbit gets in the hat, you lose the magic.
Thanks for reading,
