What a weekend! I have done nothing but be on my computer catching up on writing. Mostly for several things…an interview that I finished for Curve Wire on being a theatre critic. But most of my time finishing my 9/11 memorial story for WEHO Patch.
It was harder than I thought. Several years ago I vowed to never write about it again. I couldn’t take it any longer. But after the last year or so hearing these wishy-washy stories around it I decided to speak up again. I once blasted a girl for writing how New Yorkers just fell apart in the crisis, because frankly, I was there, and nothing even remotely like that happened. Of course my perspective is only one. But I was thrilled to have been invited by Danielle Jacoby the editor of WEHO Patch to share. She received a slightly under 2000 word story which may be chopped up depending on how they would like it to run of course. And I cried the entire time writing it, which I didn’t think was possible.
My one hope is to really tell an honest story as I experienced it that day and the following weeks. It won’t take the pain away. But I won’t have a sore throat anymore holding back the words that have so badly wanted to be heard.
Happy Labor Day!
