so i think that here, in collecting our stories, *i'm* looking for
confluences and differences that may help me understand different
composing styles. i don't want to define or characterize what i find,
but become familiar with difference/(s).
i'm working at trying to understand how becky's critique can inform what
i am saying here. are we at odds? am i missing something fundamental?
help is appreciated ...
