Eco Fem 10

That didn’t go well.

I told them to read the comments in her blog. That’s where the truth is. I’ve got nothing to hide. Not a goddam thing. I told them everything.

The cop says “What’s the state of your marriage?”
I say “17 years.”
“That’s not a state, sir, that’s a number.”
“It’s also a state.”
And the cop says “Maybe that’s the problem.”

I gave him the tombstone details. The clothes she was wearing, the car license plate “ECO FEM 10”, the colour – housefly black. What’s housefly black? Crow black. A void.

You question everything when something like this happens. And I can tell you this. It isn’t my fault. Absolutely not. She takes off and somehow it’s my fault?

January 6th Just Jot It January prompt is stream of consciousness Saturday and to use “eco” in the post. In all honesty, the draft for this entry was a stream of consciousness but I whittled it to this. I know, I know. Cheating again!

        • Now I’m really curious. Was the presentation on ecofeminism in literature or a general accounting of what it is? I did some reading today and came across an interesting thesis comparing two pieces of fiction through an ecofeminist perspective. Honestly, I never knew this was an academic area of study or a “thing”. I’m fascinated.


          • It was a general account of what it is – at the time, which was 1991 or so, it was people like Mary Daly and Susan Griffin – I believe it’s developed since then but I’m a bit out of touch – my degree was in Women’s Studies, so it wasn’t an unusual type of subject.

    • The process is scary and is slightly uncomfortable. I truly have no plan at all. I’m guided by the prompts and vaguely by what I wrote the day before. I can see where later in the month I might have to do some conscious story-boarding and paying attention to the characters and who I’ve created.

    • I’m a painfully slow writer. Almost as slow a writer as I am a reader. I kind of like the on-demand writing, too, although I think if I hit a vein I may keep writing but I haven’t reached that point yet.


    • Yes, I’m sure I may be confusing some regular readers with my new concentration on fiction. I needed to shake up the routine a bit. Thanks for taking the time to go back and read. Who knows where this is going?
