‘The past is never dead.’ Inherited trauma in real-life and in my writing

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” William Faulkner, from Requiem for a Nun Is it possible for behaviours to pass from one generation to another?

Friday Fictioneers ✮ Flash Fiction 100 words ✮ Watching the Waves Reclaim You

Photo credit © Fatima Fakier Deria Watching the Waves Reclaim You We planned it down to the last detail, you and I. Before you were too sick to make decisions or communicate.
