“I’m after magic, not proficiency, and I don’t want to sell you an adequate book. I know what it’s like to have to stand behind your work. You have to LOVE it.” Megan Mayhew Bergman, an American writer.
I think that’s why my current draft novelette is getting protracted in the tooth. I benefited from readers and editors. But I think I am working against an unreachable ideal on a pedestal.
The closest I have come to writing a work I loved was my second memoir, How Did I Get Through This? More Stories From a Jewish Physician Who Took a Different Path. (https://www.amazon.com/How-Did-Get-Through-This-ebook/dp/B07GLWQ6K6?ref_=ast_sto_dp)
I was writing with a bit more perspective, courage, experience, and hopefully wit. If you choose to read the book one day, my hope is, you will find delight between the pages.
