The Story Behind the Story: ‘In Your Honor’

This story started off as a poem. It as about a tree our neighbors planted in honor of my father after he died. When I found it again after some years I thought it would make a good story and immediately it became a piece about someone else. Poetry is very personal, which is probably why I rarely write it anymore. While The beauty about writing stories is the ability to escape in them and write about other people.
