X, Y, Z is for The End
The 2013 A-Z Writing Challenge has come to The End.
As a lover of quotations, writer of memoir, and innovative woman who celebrates endings because, for me, all endings herald new beginnings, in honor of the 2013 A-Z Writing Challenge, today I share my personal The End quotations--things said to me at one time or another that marked The End and helped make me the person I am and the better person I continue to be. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed remembering and sharing them:
"It's me; it's not you."--A lover
"You're fired!"--An ex-boss
"I'm ready to move on and I want you to move out."--Boater Bob
"What a kicker, we don't have a choice."--Edward Louis Sclier
"Give up writing, and you can be my girlfriend."--Boater Bob
"This is a one time offer. You must sign on the dotted line now."--Car Salesperson
"Get out of my way."--Something I tell myself every day.
Break structure. Look for the underbelly. Don't be afraid to do it your way.
"All of literature is gossip."--Truman Capote
