Consensus is that I should take all these essays I've written and piece them together into one long something. So I've written a couple of line description of each scene in each essay and labeled each little paragraph with the name of the essay and the page number and then I printed out the list of these paragraphs and took my cutting mat and ruler and sliced them all apart. The dining table is cleared off and these moments of my life are spread out. I wander by and slide the moments around, slide them back, go away and think about it. These are things I've noticed. I have two types of essays. Some describe a specific event. Others trace a theme (swimming, my menstrual period, loneliness, etc.) throughout my life. Also,there are scenes missing. I think I have the first and very last scenes in place. But maybe not. This is going to take awhile.
