I’m Dating Emily Dickinson

Emily DickinsonAt a recent lecture I attended, I realized that I’m dating the deceased 19th-Century, forward-thinking poet.  Chedner sure has a lot going for him, and it struck me that he has a lot in common with her.  Brilliant, somewhat anti-social, beautiful and enigmatic. 





Dickinson’s Rules for Writing (by P. Crumbley):

  1. Require reader choice.
  2. Avoid editors.
  3. Demand athletic, gymnastic readers.
  4. Challenge conventional, fixed notions of nature.
  5. Refuse complacency.
  6. Trust agony.

After the lecture, I came to the speaker and mentioned the striking resemblance Chedner holds to Dickinson in mind, passion, and pen.  His response: “You’re fortunate to know such a person: I’d like to meet someone like that.” 

I’m a lucky guy.
