Going On The Account: Taking A New Tack

(WARNING: Language found at this link may be a lot for some)

Entry # 202 of Winston Rowntree’s SUBNORMALITY really hit home for me, exploring the idea of the “road not taken,” especially for writers.  The way the character of Ethel confronts herself and looks back at her own individual PoDs (points of departure) explores the way we all ask ourselves, “What if I had done something different?”  and does so with a candor and ease that gives the process resonance.

 

It works well as a great speculative piece, and makes the individual quest to examine alternatives that much easier to relate to.
