. . . That is the question. Since Solitary Confinement was posted, there has been some curiosity regarding the inspiration behind the story and/or the ailment afflicting the character, (via e-mail and comments). I am usually very hesitant to explain the motive behind anything I write, mainly because I love playing with the idea of ambivalence. However, given the dark undertones of this piece, I’m a little more willing to share the inspiration and process that went into to creating something that is quite far from my usual bubbly personality. Though, I will assure you the character is fictitious as is her entrapment on the floor.
Seeing as the story itself was put up for a vote, it seems fitting the explanation behind it should also be subject to reader’s choice.
The results of the poll will determine whether I post an explanation. Please feel free to leave your thoughts after casting a vote, (just remember to uncheck the little box on the comment form if you do not wish to receive an e-mail for every new comment on this post).
