I just got back from a terrific session with my writing group. We were informed that one of our most treasured writers would not be joining us in person today but we did get to hear our facilitator read the writer’s newest blog posting, not yet published. She refers to herself as a character called Mrs. So-and-So.
Mrs. So-and-So could not show up today because she was suffering a broken hip which, also when x-rayed, showed that her cancer had spread, yet again. When our facilitator was done reading there was a silence. We love Mrs. So-and-So. All of us teary-eyed, moved by her storytelling, a chilling story that tells of the encroaching Fuckening, as she put it.
She is writing a powerful blog called THETHINGABOUTCANCER. Her writing is gut honest, beautifully, painfully descriptive, —believe it or not— funny at times, and just darn good powerful prose. I highly recommend this blog written by Mrs. So-and-So, for a deep look into THETHINGABOUTCANCER and to hear a writer’s voice at its finest.
I am not using her real name to preserve her privacy. Thank you to Mrs. So-and-So for her generosity.
