Author’s note: Typically in the Gotham Writers Write-In, I write fiction. This story is a change-up to that and was a culmination of how I have been feeling since my mom’s stroke. It’s been almost 2 months since I wrote this and just now feeling okay with the vulnerability of sharing this content.



Every Friday, Gotham Writers hosts virtual sessions for writers to join. People from around the world are given a prompt and 15 minutes to write. We share our stories and listen to others while we provide a supportive environment. This is a collection of some of those stories.
