Proximity

Wunderbar...a little effort certainly goes a long way, and so does a dab of reality. When a male friend says: "I'll call you." I say:"Oh please, you don't call people Steve. Facts are facts. I'll call you."" And I do with love and the awareness that I'd rather pick up the phone than not meet for six months or more. Maybe my time frame is different than his?

ADVICE FOR THE LIT-LORN
WRITING QUESTIONS, QUANDARIES & PICKLES

"I am writing essays on my not-so-innocent children and their behaviours and consequences that, now that they are older, are quite amusing (though I can’t believe I survived them!). My question is this: if I were to publish the essays or combine them in a book-length work of creative non-fiction, how would I protect their reputations? Should I write under another name and change their names as well? Is this hard to keep “undercover”?"
