I’ve been hard at work the past week writing my section introductions for What a Woman is Worth, and by that I mean, “having emotional breakdowns and hardly writing at all.” I am faced once again with ghosts of my past, and I will exorcise them– turn them from passive memory into active story, and I will be well– but the getting there is damned hard.
So this week’s theme is “ghosts.” For those interested in joining the blog link-up, take inspiration from these songwriters’ different uses of the ghost metaphor– a thing, person, or memory that haunts you; an emptiness or fear inside you; a love lost; a past to be left behind; an intangible longing. And keep in mind that ghost stories don’t necessarily have to be sinister or sad– there can be holiness raised from darkness, and spirit reborn.
Let me know:
