Lemme tell you something…

A Writer’s People

Every writer has their own way, in some way.

On his Facebook page, Writer Joseph Eastwood had this to say

“Only a writer… will hold conversations between people that don’t exist. We don’t talk to ourselves… we talk to the people we created from nothing.”

That’s how he does it. How do I do it?

I never create my people from nothing.

I create them from experiences I’ve had with the living and the (now) dead.

Remembering them, putting their flawed and broken pieces back together in my mind, I remake them.

During their re-creation they’ve made me laugh and they’ve brought tears to my eyes: to the point where I had to stop writing until the moment passed.
