Please keep in mind that this blog often has comments and statements directly from the women on death row. Statements of grief, statements of innocence, statements of regret and sorrow. If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
Remember when I said that I would have that whole Judy Neelley chapter done and turned into Christa a few Sundays ago?
Guess how far I got? You don't want to know. It would shatter your image of me.
Now, now, I don't want you to get the impression that I haven't done anything. I have. I've sent Judy two care packages. One with Christmas cards, ink pens, stickers and teddy bear stationary. She's gotten that one. Also another one- with Christmas stationary, envelopes, colored pencils, a pink and brown striped folder, a composition notebook that matched it and some pink Hello Kitty notebook paper. I'm doing this in hopes that she will take it as a token of our friendship and my appreciation of her letters. I sent her a letter yesterday that reveals my interest in more information for an article or book chapter.
I hope her attitude is favorable.
As far as actually writing, what have I done? I have written an sentence. Actually rewritten the first sentence in the chapter. Yes that's all but it is a perfect sentence. It says what I had to say so much better than what I had. I wonder how I even have written that previous, hacky, piece of written vomit. OK, that's rough but you know what I mean.
I also think I have a pretty fine tipped idea on where I'm going now and how I'm going to say it as perfectly as Ive started.
Rock on! I love when it comes together like that.
