Losing Your Soulmate: Writing While Grieving


I started a book February of last year, hoping I could finish it and publish it before the end of the year. But as I have said often enough, life intrudes, sometimes in ways you hope it doesn’t. How do you write after losing your soulmate? That book is not close to its conclusion. I’m far from the lengthy, sometimes tortuous process of having the book edited and proofread, and its book cover designed. Frankly, at this point, I’m no longer sure where to go with it. I had a very good sense of where it would lead before those life events. With time passing and all that happened last year, I have forgotten the scenes I initially meant to write.

When Writing, Like Painting, Is A Naked Art

Titian, Venus d'Urbino from Wikipedia
A few years ago, I did a large canvas painting using sketches of models from an art class I attended. At first, I didn’t know where I should go with it. I’m an okay, but not a particularly gifted painter, unsure of my work. Some artists talk about staring at large canvases and being frightened. How do you fill all that emptiness? I didn’t quite feel that way. In fact, I felt reckless—what the heck, I can gesso it if it doesn’t resonate with something in me. Or cut if up into smaller tableaus. Confronting the intimidating titanium whiteness before me, I selected a sketch. I painted her almost smack in the middle of the canvas. The model stands firmly, but she seems self-conscious.
