What is this? As a writer, as a reader… what do we exchange, solicit, magnetize, or expose? Oftentimes the vulnerability of writing a real-time public narrative accosts me. Like suddenly realizing I’m naked in a dream, I grasp for defenses, perhaps the final punctuation of the project. What are people’s intentions? Who do I allow to step into my story? Who do I keep at arm’s length? When do I slam the book? I don’t like to make these calls.
