"People have all sorts of ideas about what they'd do if it happened to them.
They'd tell their friends. They'd make that call. They'd leave. They certainly wouldn't continue on like normal, banging out personal essays or temping at whatever online mag needed a freelance editor for the day. They'd tell their family (assuming they still had family in their lives to tell), they'd keep themselves busy (pottery class! political campaigns! yoga!) They'd heal, and they'd move on, and they'd rebuild their lives.
That's what I'd always thought too."
Recently, this title caught my eye, I hope to start it soon. What do you think about the intro?
