in the end, the only facts you have are public. out of these you make what you can, knowing that one thing leads to another. sometime, someone will forget himself and say too much or else the corner of a picture will reveal the whole. – timothy findley
there’s this boy; his name means ambitious and auspicious and someone who soars.
he is beautiful, and hard working, and he definitely does soar.
but the biggest thing about him is that
his heart is filled with so much love,
his capacity for it amazes me.
so of course, this boy meets a girl, and many things happen
and all the things that happen, if you really get a chance to see them,
leave you with the feeling like
ah. so this is what they meant by “love”.
(and oh, so this can happen outside of a movie script?)
so what i want to do is…
– i want to write their story.
but i don’t know how to write something based on true events
without saying too much, or fabricating too much.
it seems like it’ll be a story with all feelings, no plot.
all telling, no showing.
is that okay?
can i write something like that?
just a pure, simple story
of my observations of other people’s stories?
is that something i can write?
