One thing I’d like to accomplish in this lifetime is to write a story. Doesn’t even have to be a novel or a novella, or even a long-short story. Just a short-short story. Simple.
In school, I was always better at math than English. With numbers, there’s always a right and wrong answer. With words, there’s no such thing.
I’d never want to write something where nothing happens. I’d never want to write something that doesn’t have a nice flow. I’d never want to write something that I wouldn’t want to read.
Today, my husband linked me this video from StoryCorps. A great example of simple, touching storytelling. And perfectly Valentine’s Day-appropriate.
