Today I called my friend who’s been battling cancer. She told me that the doctors had stopped her chemo. Now she has “hospice people” coming in every day.
What words should I have used and what can I say in the coming days when I visit her?
She is a writing buddy. Besides her published stuff, I know her unfinished plays, her unfinished novel, her so many yet unfinished artistic multi-media projects….
Can I even talk about my new novel that will be published long after she’s gone?
