So guys, "Keeping Things Whole" has kind of been dead for awhile. I don't know what to do with it and I'm not passionate about it any more. But I have a good feeling about this new draft: Shiloh and Mel (not sure if that will still be her name) are in it, it's just a different plot. So I apologize for that, but I'm happy with how this is turning out so far.
When Shiloh Tucker was born, his life expectancy was that of any other child, until he was diagnosed with a congenial heart defect as an infant. But after seventeen years of being told he would die, Shiloh Tucker is very much alive, with one little catch: after his heart failed him in infancy, his brain lost too much oxygen in the occipital lobe. So in short, he's certainly kicking, but he has been legally blind since his fourth week of life.
Compromise. Thatís what lifeís about, isnít it?
Shiloh doesn't see it that way- he doesn't like it one bit. But his lack of sight certainly never held him back from a good fistfight, and three expulsions and a broken nose later, Shiloh Tucker is being sent to live with his estranged father's relatives in Nantucket, Massachusetts, where he just might find that there's more to sight than simply seeing.
You are an amazing writer, really.
... and I can barely remember a handful of other times I cried when reading.
anyway, i love your writing. it's definitely more than words.
The way you write just... I can't even explain it. It makes my heart feel good.
It makes me happy to know there are people like you that exist in my lifetime.
I will definitely enjoy this new
The link isn't working for me, though D:
Picking a couple of phsycial ailments that aren't seen too often really caught my attention. Yes, cancer is viscious and can destroy a life, but sometimes people live even when their illnesses suggest they should have been dead long ago, too.
Very interested to see how you'll play out Shiloh being legally blind. My dad has been since birth for reasons different than Shiloh, so I'm excited to see another's perspective with the obstacle.
You're a huge writing inspiration to me. It's nice to see what you're working on now!
