Gratitude #14

Some days it is enough to be grateful the day is over. Today is one of those days.


Freebie read ==> WONDERFUL essay by the fabulous Tim O'Brien (The Things They Carried) on the characteristics of an unsuccessful story. The missing ingredient to what makes a story sing might surprise you. TELLING TALES, courtesy of The Atlantic.

Peace, Linda


  1. He's more interested in verisimilitude than I am, but O'Brien's insights into fiction are always a pleasure to read. The Things They Carried remains one of the most powerful works of fiction written in my lifetime.

  2. This is a very good gratitude. Some days are like that.
