Metafictional Love


To my 'Muse': -- (Dedicated to Miranda C*)
Time Spent: 60 minutes
No # Mistakes: >5
General Response: Ambivalent

This was just my typical once-a-year foray into writing metafiction. I like writing about writing and I think romantic ideal are so easily incorporated into a metafictional piece. The metaphors are so easy. There are single sentences in this I read a million times over because I am so happy with them, some of the others I could take or leave.

There are a few typos, but I was actually writing with amazing speed today. This was pretty cool, because usually when I try this I jam the keys a lot or, more creatively, I screw up the sentence. I am sorry about those typos when I have struck wrong keys, and I hope the piece is still readable in those areas.

So, in general: it's okay I suppose. There are some ludicrously long sentences in places.

Well, least I'm writing, right?

In Life and Love

*For being the one person who has harassed me on an ongoing basis about me not writing on my typewriter.


  1. I love it Sammi! I'm sorry though.... i never meant to harass you to write.... i just love reading your stuff... you have an amazing talent, i could never even dream of writing like you do =)I'm not good with words.... as you know, i even have trouble talking properly most of the time! It's a beautiful piece, i'm not sure i understand it.... i must go and think about it some more! <3<3<3

  2. Harassing is good - we writers can be lazy creatures at the best of times ;)Sometimes we need a boot up the butt, or two, or three!

    <3 to you too! Am glad you enjoyed it <3<3
