EMPATHY - Writelog 08
I'm about a third of the way through this project, which means it's time I once again spoke obliquely about the content of this latest project.
I was adopted in infancy, yet this one attribute has never informed my writing at all. While I've had characters who lived out fictional versions of my own pain and triumph, none of them have been adopted. What's more, I never even realized this. It's strange that something that has been - at least for certain stretches of my life - central to my identity has never appeared in my work in close to a decade.
The main character of this story is not adopted. However, the experience touches his life all the same.
