"You need to go deeper within yourself to find my truth," Eleanor says. "You're aren't risking enough yet. You need to risk everything. I told you before."
To which the storyteller responds, "There are so many words, and they're all mixed up, but I promise you -- on my life -- that I will make you proud."
Eleanor says: "I'm impatient, but I trust you. There's no one I trust more."
"I'll risk everything, I will," the storyteller says. "I know I'm not there yet, but I'm closer with each passing hour."
To Reach The Green Light At The End Of The Pier
FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES: "We are saving ourselves through the words," says Eleanor, the leading lady of a novel-in-progress. This exploration into the creative process -- which includes plenty of distractions/tangents /thoughts & rants by Eleanor, her Biographer, and selected guest artists -- will continue until Eleanor is certain her story is "right." (But we dare not jump ahead of ourselves.)
There will be the occasional typo (as Eleanor points out), and much of this is intended to be "original draft" -- what comes out of our mouths (heads) first, and then set down in that order. Not all of it will be included in the novel, but all of it is happening in real time.
ELEANOR says: "Please turn the page. Keep reading."
