IMAGE DESCRIPTION:
Why do memoirists insist on writing in the present tense?!? Present tense conveys the immediacy of lived experience! It evades the duty of the memoirist: to forge meaning out of the past via retrospection!! We're not all Phillip Lopate! Memory, like language, is a social construct!!! Then construct it in the past frickin' tense!!!!
hotkeys: D = random, W = like, S = dislike, A = back
