It happens. From time to time. I am asked to write. Some editors are also writers, but this one is not. I can be almost awestruck by a book and yet have a time of writing even one paragraph if asked to review it. I can do it clinically. Break it down by plot and character development. But gush lavishly about the experience? Not so much.
This assignment is more difficult yet. I have agreed to write about some things which I have experienced personally and that means ripping some old scabs off again. I will do it. I gave my word, I love the person who asked, and I believe in the project.
Wish me luck.
