Is a personal essay of mine that has just been published on the Common Ties Story Blog.
The essay is a wee bit whiny (like most of my stuff). Nevertheless, I am proud of having been selected, and am honestly honoured to be included in such a fun, diverse group of writers, both aspiring and established. I was charmed by First Shooting Star (and reminded of all the nights my father and I spent looking at meteor showers and making out familiar constellation shapes from the jumble of stars up above), and then there’s the childhood humiliation of Spin the Bottle, and… Well, see for yourself. And bring me my chapstick while you’re at it, ’cause my lips hurt real bad (har har).
Please check out this wonderful project in full.
Thank you, Elizabeth and James.
