story swap #1

I went to story swap! I had a story! I put my name in the pitcher! My name did not come out of the pitcher.

Which is okay, because my story was kind of a mess. I like telling stories that look like they're going to be a mess, like I'm handing you a codfish and a bicycle wheel and Euclid's fifth postulate, but at the end you see how they all fit together!

This story had a theme, which was that telling the story of a traumatic event is healing, but the fish and the postulate did not come together to support that theme. They went to the place of Things People Actually Say to a woman who has just lost a baby and stayed there, because I can make Things People Actually Say funny, and I love making people laugh. It is the best.

Next time I will be less scared!
