“People will be together only in a common wretchedness as long as each isolated being refuses to understand that a gesture of liberation, however weak and clumsy it may be, always bears an authentic communication, an adequate personal message.” – Raoul Vaneigem
It all started with Saturnalia.
Learning through revision…yeah, there’s nothing like beating your living head against a gossamer of thoughts in the shape of a story. You’d think it wouldn’t hurt a bit, but it does. The thing is–the further I go with this version, the more wrong it feels. Well, maybe not wrong so much as weak, or maybe, ill-conceived. Off-track. My notes for the next revision stack higher and higher, but the story remains the same and nothing really changes about Ike or Fred, just the mechanics of getting to know them. So, thank you for sticking with me as I learn how to tell my story. And now, back to it…

I did it again. And again. Taking advantage of Etsy’s Treasuries tool, I made two more mini storyboards of the Casa Hector story so far. I like making Treasuries to begin with, but to try to scavenge images that provide mood and plot elements to make a visual story is irresistible. They are: Casa Hector: Summer into Fall and Casa Hector: Winners and Losers. I hope you will take a look and continue to enjoy the novel-in-progress. Thanks for sticking with me!
