DONALD MAASS WRITET TIP #68 What’s a feeling impossible to put into words?  Work until you have the words. Now find that feeling in your story. Add

Jude and me. It is nothing like a kind of gentle nurturing. How does that make me feel? I remember all the moments when I knew he was there even before he spoke. Jude is the crumble of tension on the surface of my pretty, serene life. I hesitate. It’s funny, when I think of Jude I find I hesitate a lot. I call to mind how it feels when his calloused fingers drag across the smooth surface of my skin. With him, I always feel I’m on the verge of some kind of beautiful. Not pruned, tamed, or even predictable, this flower is every kind of random.
Jude innervates me.
So much for my patio life. Jude found the cracks in that theory. He blew in and shattered it. Now, anything is possible. I’m more than the sum of my plan when I am in his arms.
Jude is unquantifiable.

With him, even I am wild.

What is your first thought when you hear the word IMPOSSIBLE?
