One struggle I encounter with writing is trying to capture a particular experience in just the right way.
Mo, I really enjoyed this piece.

Thank you, Karen, and I think you are spot on with this observation. This is what I am trying to get to with this idea of being “haunted” by a story. I, too, want to “capture” the thing, but it won’t hold still. That struggle is, I think, the dialogue, the conversation you are talking about.

I’ve told this story about Lydia and written about her probably 50 times. Each time she helps me understand something new. But she still won’t hold still. I hope she never does.

Like what you read? Give Mo Scott a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
