I created a new blog on the weekend. It’s called My Embellished Life. It’s a site for first-person writers, like myself, to post stories, preferably embellished, the way my dad tells his stories!
The first two contributing writers are Steve Sears and Jane Alexander.
Steve’s story, An Apology to Stefani, is a beautiful, public letter to his twenty-year old daughter. I don’t think there’s a parent of teens who won’t feel like they, too could have written a letter like this to one of their kids.
Jane’s story, Labyrinth of Love, will take you on a meandering stroll through her mind as she considers love and life and change.
And then there’s my own first story, Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In, in which I consider the value of astrology in helping understand (or predict the outcome of) love relationships. This story is in the true spirit of My Embellished Life, a factual story with several creative ‘remembrances.’
