How happy these lads must have been when they were really miserable; they said to themselves: ‘What a bit of luck! A good line will be born!’
Jean-Paul Satre, Words
Writers are lucky because there is almost nothing that can’t be turned into a good story. Very little remains unexamined, it all provides grist to the mill.
In that vein, I have written a short story for the ABC Tales competition, Let’s Start Again.
While my good friend, the 3 eyed boy, recounts:
One really great day; a day filled with the anxious thrill and aching
And there is a more scientific discussion of the whole phenomenon here, which concludes:
No doubt, trapeze artists must have complicated and compelling love lives
I would add writers too, even if the only trapeze ropes they swing from are metaphorical. I hope you enjoy the results of our falling and leaping.
