No, it was a threat. More than that, it was a promise.
This is it, the last intallment of the memoir — “Break Me into Pieces.”
I had not expected this thing to turn into a novella. This section is about 9,000 words, and that brings the whole story together to just under 30,000 words. I feel like I’ve written about ten times that, to be honest, because this journey has been absolutely draining.
But it is finished. And I have to say I’ll probably never venture into this again. I’ll stick with fiction, thanks.
There were more tears being dripped onto my keyboard on this last segment than the second one, believe it or not, because I had to face the questions that had been sealed in desperation.
My most humble thanks and gratitude to those who have helped me on this journey – whether it’s by being there for me, reading what I wrote, sharing it with others, or just a simple email and/or comment that passed on sympathy and love.
So, without further ado, “Break Me into Pieces”.
Much, much love — Lavender Wynter
