I made a decision today. I am going to write a book. Not real. Not about prison. Not about this heartache. Simply because being touched by all this heartbreak, learning what it does to people inside and out – it is true, just like that woman told me – it sucks the life right out of you. It reminds me of that movie – The Secret Life of Bees. The girl who feels others’ pain and she eventually kills herself because it is too overwhelming. I am choosing not to kill myself. Instead – I will create a different world.
So – as my escape from this sadness – I am writing my first novel! I’m excited….
