In a recent comment on thread to which it was actually germane, an RfM'er said the above comment.

As I advance in decrepitude, that same thought occurs to me. I especially cherish the notion of exposing my TBM daughter to how little I've done to deserve the blessings I've received. A sinner of my magnitude should have long ago been cast into hell.

My mom left me a significant number of photographs, and pre-digital I took a number. They've all been digitized. But as digital images, they don't 'say' as much as they could be saying...

I'm wondering if the following makes any sense. It's based on a limited understanding of 'websites'.

One can purchase a domain name, and use the services of a 'GoDaddy' or a 'square space' to then build a website. Is it possible to tell one's story, webpage by webpage, with the appropriate words and photos? Could you build 'chapters'? According to the ads, "Your webpages are easy to build with our tools!"

Is that true? Well, heck yeah, it has to be true!

I think I have to hurry... Cheech Marin is running out of time, in terms of playing me in the movie that would inevitably result.

I had your role in the movie played by Danny Trejo...

Cheech? Too tame...

You look at the words, I am looking at the book cover.

... Perhaps I need to respect your point of view?

Write it! Do it! Now! I said so and you don't want to cross me.

Page by page is perfect. Little by little. Step by step. Lead them ALL down to hell---which is, surprise, EOD Heaven.

What happened to your novel? I think I know some folks who had bit parts.

We live in a world with little attention span for entire stories. We like pastiches thus the success of the "memoir."

You could write a memoir and post it here in a series of threads if you needed some Exmo inputs for that time in your life. And picking a particularly apropos time in your life that would reach your daughter would be the focus. I have three TBM daughters. I've thought about what I could pick and write about but my life probably wouldn't reach my kids. An abused person who eventually went on to reproduce with a loving partner three offspring who never knew the trauma of my life doesn't have much pull with said offspring.

I'm probably seen as a victim of circumstances more than a fraudulent abusive authoritarian cult of corporate prosperity.

If you put it out there like a blog or something it will slowly gain traction. Your writing is very seductive. Some will even interrupt their porn when a new chapter springs up-- short attention spans that are now popular these days being in play. :)

I've always suspected that examination of how a male uses his “recovery time” to be a useful factor in re an analysis of character. The fact that I use that time to knit or crochet I believe speaks well for me ...

Having written my own story extensively, I recommend you go for it. You will experience both a catharsis and a new understanding of your history. You can begin any time by writing short pieces here and on facebook.
