Timelines Are Sarah (notes)

notes from Timelines R Sarah
For me, it has been as much an unconscious endeavor as a conscious one. Dreams crossing over into waking reality. And waking reality over into dreams. 

Working through the complexities of the narrative structure in my book has not been an easy task. The story itself is based on the potential outcome of several different timelines in one woman's life or lives. Thus the title of the story Timelines Are Sarah. Unfortunately, I simply did not think about how things would end up.  I just wrote and did. But sooner or later I knew I would have to go back and tie up loose ends. And it ended up being a bit like weaving tapestry on a loom,  a strange sort of loom. One made of dreams, rather than paper.

Are you dreaming? Or are you awake?
