Prof. Anne,

Thank you for the quote..."and the biggest lie is that they show coherence where there is none...Stories are impossible, but it's impossible to live without them." This was most powerful to me as I stuggle with feeling that my story (ies) never "come together"...almost to the point of hatred at times. Chaos has been my friend for a long time and trying to calm her can be an almost impossible task...when writing my stories I feel I always have to have some type of logical, "coherent" meaning to them...but how do I create a "face" of order in the midst of chaos when my story is only chaos?


I don't know what the meaning of this quote is...but it made me feel like writing. Thanks for the post.
