I know I promised to have Part 2 up right away, but when I started to write it the other night, I found I couldn’t continue because in my current state of mind, it was just too triggering–and too complicated for me to try to explain why.
I also had to think about the way I’d present Part 2, which is going to be lot more dramatic and eventful than Part 1, and I knew the back and forth patient/therapist dialogue of Part 1 would not work for the second post.
Part 2 will be told from David’s point of view, in narrative form. I am doing it that way because much of what David will experience is internal and can only be told from a narrative point of view, so the reader can vicariously experience the feelings David experiences, with maximum impact. I don’t think a dialogue would be as effective in getting his complicated emotions across, especially since much of what David experiences cannot be expressed in spoken words.
No promises, but I hope to have the second part up over the weekend.
