Soundtracks, part 2
Monday morning, back at the memoir. I'm in tweaking/restructuring mode. And what music did I just turn on? Why, the Godfather, of course. What music do you use to trigger your mojo? I wrote about this last June, too, when I was in first draft mode--well, new draft mode anyway. I'd already wrote a draft that Sally sent out to editors who said, Like/love the writing but what's the story? I had to find the story in my massive hutch full of bizarre to interesting to sad family stories. When my brother was diagnosed as terminal and I found I was still pissed off at him, I had to forgive him fast. The book is about how you forgive the unforgivable. I didn't have a focus until that point.
