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.

Shaw: "... you imagine what you desire."
"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will."
-- George Bernard Shaw
Eleanor says she's sorting through her collection of moondust from last night. It was carried to her piggybacking raindrops. (Quite a sight to behold, she says.)
Meanwhile, Eleanor's biographer is attempting to collect all of the energy he can so he's able to go on a creativity binge. Yes, "creativity binging."
ELEANOR says: "Please turn the page. Keep reading."
For more of Eleanor and her Biographer -- as well as the work of our many guest artists -- check out the older postings. "Everything is part of the process, and the process is the journey," Eleanor says.
