1. Minor Sustain

    The paralyzing realization that this is everything that it could be, and that it will not last. Unable to experience the moment without feeling it as a memory escaped to by your future self.

    Nostalgia for the Present.

    shrubmunchkin said: That sounds awesome! Do you have any examples of what these pieces would be though? Just trying to get a better idea.

    Let’s see, say someone writes a story about a character who has to decide between using their money for subway fare or overdue library fine, and they choose subway fare, because someone is waiting for them, and they do not return the book because they can’t pay the fine. The End

    The next player would get that story and find something else to tell about. The next piece could be a photograph of a bookshelf with a missing book, perhaps a hand reaching into the empty space. In the background, maybe there is a clock, or the reaching hand has on a notable piece of jewelry. The End

    The next piece could be a poem about absence or time or adornment, or a story about how that piece of jewelry survived a shipwreck to get to that hand (Oh crap, is that Titanic creeping in my subconscious? I hate that). The End.

    The next piece could be about someone who built that ship, or the sea, or someone fated to be on that doomed voyage, or someone who reads a headline about the sinking, and it causes them to…

    It’s collaborative, but will come out best if the works retain their individuality, it’s possible to participate with any medium, and will take the month of August to complete.
    Any interest?

    More is better, at least in this case. If you’re already in, feel free to invite anyone else (so long as I find out to be able to organize).

     
  5. Written on skin

    I have visible scars, but people only ever ask, “When did you get that?” when they see the tattoo. They want to know when and where I got it, what it means, how I decided on it, how I feel about the permanence. They ask, but they never really listen to the answers, which is itself a disincentive to answering.
    They all mark me, and they all changed me, and they were all significant, but people only want to appropriate my creativity without acknowledging my struggles.
