Martine - Introduction

I've been meaning to post this story I wrote for a long time, but I never really got around to it. Actually, I posted the first part some time back but never continued. It came to me one day while I was at work and since it was a quiet day, I wrote it out. It became a daily thing and I reached a point where I didn't know how to continue. I have a vague idea of what will happen, but I haven't sat down and let it flow.

The premise of the story so far is a French woman of African descent is confronted by her biracial son who she gave up for adoption. She now resides in the United States, is married, has two girls and is a French professor at a community college. The story takes a look at secrets coming to light and the pain that comes from when two people not being able to see the other person's point of view.

Like most of my work, this doesn't feel like it's mine. It's more like a story that comes from somewhere else. Some people would say it's from God or from a muse, I don't really know. All I can say is I feel honoured to be the vessel through which these delightful and thought provoking poems and stories can come through.

Check back next Friday and every Friday for Martine (this is just a working title, mind you). I hope you enjoy it and don't forget to comment.
