A circle of words; never changing words. Every story has been written and felt before. Hers too. And yet, she feels as if she has to share her book of life in some way. Perhaps, laced with fiction, readers will want to know more about this unique yet average character. Perhaps, they recognise some of the described feelings and emotions and validate her in some way? But more likely, her own words become true for herself, too: everyone has a story, but not everyone should tell it.
Who decides if a story is worth hearing? Who is to say that one’s feelings are more valid than others? Who decides those things?
A circle of words; of never changing simple words can have as much (if not more) impact than complicated vocabulary.
